Gauging AML Success –
Driving towards Effectiveness

As an international financial center, Hong Kong attaches great importance to safeguarding the integrity of its financial systems by implementing international standards on anti-money laundering / counter-financing of terrorism (AML / CFT) to deter and detect illicit funds. Following the Hong Kong Mutual Evaluation Report published in September 2019 by the Financial Action Task Force, it is more critical than ever that financial services businesses take steps to manage the risk of being involved in money laundering and other illicit financial flows.

ACAMS is pleased to host the 12th Annual AML & Financial Crime Conference – Asia Pacific in Hong Kong on 27 – 28 April 2020. Part of our International Annual Conference Series, this year’s Conference will examine the key risks facing financial services businesses in APAC and provide insights on some of the latest developments in the AML / CFT regulatory environment. In addition, we will examine the key risks facing financial services businesses in APAC and enable compliance professionals to strengthen the fight against financial crime.
