Regulatory activity in various jurisdictions is heating up as geopolitical turmoil shows no sign of abating, coupled with economic instability, which presents serious challenges for financial institutions. Businesses anticipate an increase in financial crime risks in the current environment. It’s an intricate mosaic of challenges where the forces of money laundering, corruption, fraud, and financial crime pose formidable threats and require compliance vigilance.

The billion-dollar money laundering case in Singapore raises questions about how illicit activity could have slipped under radar but also underscores the critical importance of robust frameworks and continuous refinement of regulations to meet compliance challenges. AI offers exciting promises in this realm but has introduced novel forms of cyber threats, data privacy, financial fraud, and other regulatory challenges at a faster pace than ever before. Making a RegTech switch is always a challenge with legacy systems, data silos, and internal collaboration roadblocks that inflate compliance tasks and costs.

Join us as we dissect the latest developments and equip you with the tools to thrive amidst uncertainty. The ALB Pan Asian Regulatory and Anti-Corruption Compliance Summit 2024 returns, bringing together distinguished anti-money laundering experts, chief compliance officers, regulators, and thought leaders for a day of profound discourse and networking in Singapore while navigating these challenges collectively.

From exploring the interplay between automation and fraud to delving into the intricacies of sanctions compliance, the agenda encompasses a diverse array of topics designed to empower attendees on risk management, emerging trends, and real-world compliance issues, as striking the right balance between fostering innovation and safeguarding stability remains a conundrum.
