In 2020 and 2021, Covid-19 upended the global economy and presented a perfect storm of opportunity for criminals to exploit vulnerable systems, individuals and companies for illicit gains. Bad actors demonstrated their resilience, flexibility, and ability to overcome geographic, cultural and organisational boundaries.
As the financial crime landscape continued to evolve, the financial industry responded through greater information sharing, introducing new controls to guard against new and emerging threats, and increasingly leveraging technology to meet the pace of change seen in bad actors’ approaches and techniques.
In this webinar, we discuss financial crime trends to be on the lookout for in the year ahead and how institutions can ensure their response is adequate and fit for purpose.
We will cover:
- Emerging threats for money laundering, including virtual assets, stablecoins, CBDCs and NFTs
- Evolving sanctions landscape and expectations for the year to come, as well as the likely impact on compliance functions
- Green Crime as a key focus as ESG-related crime and due diligence of third parties and supply chains take centre stage
- Beneficial ownership and preventing the abuse of shell companies and other legal arrangements
