6th Anti-Money Laundering Directive: What now?

Date recorded: Thursday 13th May, 2021
Duration: 60 minutes
Speakers: Details below
The EU 6th Anti-Money Laundering Directive (6AMLD), which came into effect on 3 December 2020 and needs to be implemented by regulated entities by 3 June 2021, is the EU’s toughest ever measure to combat money laundering, aiming to empower financial institutions and authorities to do more in the fight against financial crime. More specifically, the 6AMLD aims to expand the scope of existing legislations, clarify certain regulatory details, and extend criminal liabilities.

To comply with the 6AMLD, all regulated entities will need to have robust AML systems, policies and procedures in place to meet their transaction monitoring and screening requirements.

Watch this webinar to learn:

  • What is the expanded regulatory scope of 6AMLD?
  • How will 6AMLD affect your business?
  • How expanded offences under 6AMLD will interact with the UK’s own criminal offences for money laundering?
  • How can technology help you enhance and improve effectiveness of your compliance programme?
