'Dealing with Dynamics - the fight against financial crime'

10% EARLY BIRD DISCOUNT for all bookings received prior to 31st December 2017 

Chaired by Justine Walker, UK Finance and featuring the Financial Conduct Authority, National Crime Agency, HM Treasury, HMRC, City of London Police and Police Scotland plus many more expert speakers.

The 2018 conference promises to be another superb event from IMLPO, with the opportunity to hear first hand from Regulators, Supervisors, Legislators and Enforcers, whilst networking with colleagues from the financial crime prevention community.

The landscape continues to present significant challenges with the increase in cyber-attacks and terrorist atrocities, although the appetite to intercept serious economic crime and terrorist activities is greater than ever.

The introduction of the Criminal Finances Act and the more prescriptive 2017 Money Laundering Regulations, in addition to the progression to the 5th Money Laundering Directive, demonstrate the ongoing commitment of the UK Government to make the UK a hostile environment for criminals.

Join us at the 2018 Annual Conference to hear from specially selected subject matter experts to inform you and your firms about how to remain compliant.
