Future of FinCrime Summit


You started a career in financial crime prevention to be a difference-maker, a case breaker. You’re not content with the status quo, and with treating AML and fraud compliance as bare-minimum “check the box” activity. You’re seeking to learn what’s actually effective in stopping bad actors and illicit finance, and you want to meet other professionals who think like you.

If any of these descriptors resonate with you, then you belong at the Future of FinCrime Summit 2023 in New York City. This one-day gathering brings together innovators and thought leaders across AML, fraud, sanctions and cybersecurity to network, learn and push things forward in financial crime prevention.

Through lively panel conversations, presentations and interactive discussion sessions, you’ll explore the latest criminal threats driving financial crime risks, challenge the norms that are holding back compliance programs, and hear directly from regulators and law enforcement on their top priorities.

Are You Actually Prepared for the AML Act? Updates, Challenges and What's Next

The AML Act of 2020 was a landmark piece of legislation when passed three years ago, with sweeping changes to corporate transparency, beneficial ownership, financial crime priorities and more. Since then, while some implementing regulations and elements have emerged, the progress to bring the law into regulatory reality has been steady but slow.

The response from some financial institutions is to take a "wait and see" approach, but as key parts of the AML Act take shape, is the time for waiting at an end? Should financial institutions and other organizations be more proactive to ready their customer due diligence and compliance programs for the impacts of the legislation? And what can we expect looking ahead to 2024? In this session, hear from regulators who play a key role in AML Act implementation on the status of the legislation, suggestions for institutions who may be affected, and what's likely to emerge in the coming months.

9:55 AM – 10:45 AM
The Evolution of Sanctions and Weapons Proliferation - Perspectives from OFAC and Task Force KleptoCapture

When governments around the world hit Russia with sanctions in response to the invasion of the Ukraine, sanctions compliance programs and the professionals behind them stepped up to the challenge, implementing screening and blocking for sanctions of unprecedented scale and scope. Since then, new challenges have emerged. Sanctions evaders have shifted tactics and targets, and the rising risks of weapons proliferation and dual-use goods have added new wrinkles to an already complex field.

Where does this leave sanctions compliance professionals? What are the key risk areas and evasion techniques to prioritize, and what are regulators expecting to see as best practices in a rapidly-changing world? In this session, hear from experts as they explore these issues and more.

Customer Due Diligence is Broken… Here's How to Fix It

Ever felt like you're having an identity crisis? No, we don't mean in your personal life - we're talking about customer identities, and the challenges in building an effective CDD/KYC program at a time of rising criminal risks and the complexities of digital onboarding. On this session, we'll start with the premise that customer due diligence is fundamentally broken, due to a combination of regulatory shortcomings, sophisticated threats and the approaches we're using to identify customers.
