Efforts to combat financial crime are pulled in different directions by the competing narratives of national politics, global economic inequality and rapid socio-economic changes. Some of these forces are centripetal, politics especially. But others, such as the rapid advance of technology, are beginning to force governments and regulators to think — admittedly at different speeds — about how to respond in a coherent way.
On February 19th, our Head of AML Research, B.C. Tan is exploring how technology and politics are set to shape financial crime compliance. Joining B.C. is Payal Patel, Managing Director of Fintrail – Asia and Matthew Redhead, Associate Fellow of the Royal United Services Institute.
