OVERVIEW

Financial crime has become an increasingly significant global issue and continues to evolve rapidly with the digital age, presenting a great risk to the integrity of the global financial system and society. Two most prevalent types of financial crime today — money laundering and terrorist financing — remain top concerns in the financial industry given the rising sophistication and complexity of these activities. According to a global report, the cost of financial crime to the global economy is estimated at USD1.45 trillion while in the Asia Pacific, estimates stand at USD166 billion. Additionally, the amount of money laundered globally in a year is estimated by the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime to be 2%–5% of global GDP, or USD800 billion–USD2 trillion.

Against this backdrop, governments, law enforcement agencies and regulators worldwide are calling for greater transparency, accountability and collaboration to further raise awareness of this issue on a global scale and develop new, innovative and effective ways to fight these crimes. Given that financial institutions are the front liners who play a pivotal role in safeguarding a nation’s financial system, it is imperative that financial practitioners comply with regulatory policies and keep abreast of the latest developments, technologies and tools needed to take on financial crime and implement more effective and efficient preventive controls.

In line with our national reform agenda of strengthening transparency and accountability, this year’s theme is “Building Trust and Transparency: Collaborate, Accelerate, Strengthen”. Leading global regulators, financial crime experts, thought leaders and industry practitioners will discuss and debate various aspects of this multi-faceted and borderless issue, covering topics such as combating corruption and bribery, conduct risk, tax evasion and abuse, regulatory updates, terrorism financing, digital disruptors and new technologies, proliferation financing, cybersecurity and more. The one-day Masterclass will focus on best practices in conducting meaningful and effective customer due diligence in the digital age.

The IFCTF 2019 is expected to draw more than 800 delegates from the public and private sector, including regulators and banking and financial practitioners. It will also provide an important platform for the anti-financial crime community in Malaysia and beyond to further network and strengthen collaboration to fight financial crime.

Conducting Meaningful and Effective Customer Due Diligence (CDD) in the 21st Century

CDD aims to improve financial transparency and prevent criminals and terrorists from misusing bank accounts to disguise their illicit activities and launder their ill-gotten gains. The end-to-end sound CDD journey best practices allow participants to unveil beneficial owners and make sound decisions on how CDD can be used to improve data key elements for future monetisation.

Technology Enablers: How technology innovation leaders are transforming the world

The complexity of technology and the exponential growth in innovation are continuously transforming organisations in the financial ecosystem.

Trade-Based Anti-Money Laundering Detection: Rethinking the approach

Trade-based money laundering (TBML) is one of the most sophisticated methods of cleaning dirty money, and among the hardest to detect. Criminals continue to evolve their practice of moving the proceeds of crime using legitimate trade transactions by honing in on vulnerable markets. As the burden falls on compliance officers to stay current, this session will provide deeper insights on emerging schemes and updated AML technology to detect and prevent criminal activity including:

  • identifying red flags in trade
  • trends of trade-based ML
  • how to design the best defence against TBML

Modernisation of Insurance Compliance: Evolving to enable and drive with the speed of business

Chief Compliance Officers of insurance companies are facing mounting pressure from both internal and external sources, such as increasing regulatory expectations and regulations, the talent crunch, the drive to enhance operational efficiency, and preparedness to face new and emerging risks. To overcome this, compliance professionals often take a tactical approach in trying to understand the reasons for compliance failures and to fix it. As times are changing, more than ever, there is a real need for compliance professionals to be strategic and pivot from focusing on hindsight to foresight to enable business growth. This will require modernisation of the compliance function and new approaches to compliance.

Terrorism Financing: Current and emerging trends and threats

Terrorism financing continues to pose a major threat to international peace and security and looms over the financial services industry. Addressing these threats is much more difficult given the complex and constantly evolving nature of terrorist activities and the nexus between international terrorism and organised crime. This session focuses on how the industry can better anticipate terrorism financing risks, as well as the importance of implementing the FATF standards, including:

  • sharing of successful stories and lessons learnt
  • red flags and how to identify terrorism financing
  • how best to profile this group
  • why and how is radicalisation taking place. Radicalisation can be described as “what goes on before the bomb goes off”
  • the phenomenon of non-violent radical groups. These are radical/extremist groups which have very radical ideas but do not actually state that they are for violence
  • countering terrorist narratives: What is the story of the terrorist/extremist and how we can counter their narrative.

Money Laundering and Terrorism Financing Risk in International Financial Centres

International Financial Centres (IFCs) play a crucial role in the global financial system by connecting businesses and investments worldwide, mobilising capital, providing funds, safeguarding wealth and preserving assets. However, business structures in the IFCs, which involve foreign nationals, intermediaries and the use of legal arrangement, contribute to the misconception that they are less regulated and transparent.

The imminent negative impact of money laundering and terrorism financing activities led to governments of many IFCs increasing the level of compliance and promoting better transparency in combating threats by implementing stringent anti-money laundering and counter financing of terrorism regulations.
