Prudent regulations, sensible laws and robust public policies are the foundation of anti-financial crime (AFC) efforts worldwide — and that requires shared values, common strategies and mutually agreeable goals on behalf of government agencies, private institutions and committed non-governmental organizations. ACAMS’ Anti-Financial Crime and Public Policy Conference, February 6-7 in Washington, D.C., seeks to forge much-needed consensus on a myriad of AFC subjects, such as human trafficking, sanctions, financial inclusion and cybercrime. At this unique assemblage of thought leaders, drawn from government, industry, NGOs and think tanks, diverse AFC constituencies will share insights and strategies for developing informed public policies that strengthen the fight against financial crime.
