Join us at the No.1 Regulatory Summit in MENA

For more than a decade the MENA Regulatory Summit has been recognized as the region's largest and most distinguished regulatory event. It is the platform for regulators and financial crime industry experts and professionals to discuss the latest regulatory issues and challenges. Whilst the regulatory environment has evolved substantially over the past ten years, recent months in particular have been characterized by unprecedented change and uncertainty. 

The recent mutual evaluations by The Financial Action Task Force conducted across MENA, provide great value and substantial insight for stakeholders in the region. The FATF is recognized by many as the international standard-setter in the fight against financial crime, and their guidance is invaluable.
Please join us on 18th March, as we engage with key members of the regulatory community, including Mr. Abdul Hafiz Mansour, President of the MENA FATF 2018 and H.E. Maryam Al Suwaidi, UAE Mutual Evaluation Project Lead. 

Other discussions include key trends identified in the 5th Annual MENA Financial Crime Report, the latest developments regarding global sanctions, the use of emerging technology and the challenges of information sharing.
