5AMLD for Fintechs and Banks: From Theory to Practice

5AMLD for Fintechs & Banks:

From Theory to Practice

Tuesday, 28 July 2020 | 11am BST

The Fifth Anti-Money Laundering Directive (5AMLD) came into force in January 2020 to deepen the European Union’s AML/CFT regime and close the gap on a number of emergent and ongoing issues not previously covered.
The impact of 5AMLD is far-reaching, covering the legislative treatment of cryptocurrencies, prepaid cards, ultimate beneficial owners, and beyond. However, as many firms and even member states are still continuing to finalise their adoption of 5AMLD, this webinar will examine the theory behind the directive, what the legislation has looked like in practice and the realities for firms undergoing implementation.

Join Matthew Redhead, Associate Fellow, RUSI and a panel of experts, as they discuss:

  • What best practice for fintechs & banks look like and common pitfalls in implementation
  • The regulator’s expectations and how to stay positively compliant
  • 6AMLD, what to expect and how to get a headstart.

This webinar has now concluded.
