AML & Financial Crimes Congress 2021 - Online

GRCI’s annual AML and Financial Crimes Congress will take place in 2021.

Given the current state of flux nationally with COVID restrictions and travel, this event has now been confirmed to be 100% online delivery. Apologies to those of you who were hoping to see your fellow professionals face to face, we shall have to wait just a little while longer this year.

However - we have amassed quite a list of learnings from 2020 that we will bring to this event. What we guarantee is that we will build:

  • Access to regulators
  • Interactive workshop sessions
  • Networking activities (albeit online!)
This one-day event is an opportunity for risk and compliance professionals to receive industry updates, measure different perspectives in the financial crime space, learn about emerging career trends, hear from regulators, assess the impact of emerging technologies such as Fintech and RegTech, and network with like-minded professionals.

As always, we will seek speakers from across industry and AUSTRAC to speak about the latest arising topics and challenges and how AML practice needs to evolve to meet these. Additionally we are working on a program that includes Modern Slavery, Sanctions, Fraud and ABC to fill out the financial crimes spectrum of topics.

Prereading will be circulated to attendees in advance of the event and our sponsors: LexisNexis, will be providing a post event summary document for attendees to utilise when briefing their boards and staff post-event.
We hope you will join us for this day of intensive professional development.
