Hybrid event

EU anti-money laundering reforms: building a resilient framework

Watch the recording of this event:

Regulatory fragmentation and a tick-the-box approach are amongst the biggest impediments to an effective and efficient anti-money laundering policy. Is compliance on its own enough to prevent economic crime?

In this hybrid event, Accountancy Europe wants to discuss the latest developments in the EU AML reforms, especially the parts related to the expected EU single rulebook.

Together with several key players of the AML field, join us in person or online to exchange views on how to best implement the legislative package. Participants attending in person will be able to gather for some food and networking after the event, at 13:00-14:00 CET.
