2018 Bermuda Financial Crime Symposium
The Deloitte Financial Crime Symposium took place on Friday, November 2, 2018. The free, half-day conference was the first of its kind in Bermuda and attracted over 100 locally based Anti-Money Laundering & Anti-Terrorist Financing (“AML/ATF”) professionals with compelling panel discussions focusing on key AML/ATF issues.
The Bermuda Monetary Authority kicked off the event and provided a status of the Caribbean Financial Action Task Force mutual evaluation review and discussed future risk assessments (video not uploaded). Sian Dalrymple (Bank of Butterfield), Jane Lewis (Horseshoe Group), and Suzanne Williams (ABIR) took part in a panel led by Rachelle Frisby (Deloitte Bermuda Financial Advisory Partner) to discuss challenges currently faced by compliance officers. Alexi von Keszyck (Deloitte US Risk and Financial Advisory Managing Director), who has developed AML and sanctions compliance programs for a virtual currency exchange, spoke on managing emerging AML/ATF risks related to virtual currency / digital assets in an evolving regulatory environment. Michael Shepard (Deloitte Global Financial Crime Leader) spoke with Brett Henshilwood (Deloitte Bermuda Risk Advisory Partner) about the future of financial crime and cyber in the financial services industry. Michael then provided his thoughts on AML priorities in the US.
The event helped to identify common issues faced by AML/ATF professionals as well as providing an insight into what the future of AML/ATF may look like.
