Joining Forces to Better Fight Money Laundering

Anti-Money Laundering Roundtable

Joining Forces to Better Fight Money Laundering

At a time where Anti-Money Laundering rules are undergoing significant changes both on European and global level, FEE organised a Round Table to stimulate stakeholders’ cooperation against money laundering.

Professionals subject to Anti-Money Laundering obligations shared their views with policymakers and representatives from businesses, standard setters, NGOs and peer pressure mechanisms on how the legal framework can become more practicable, how horizontal issues and conflicts of law can be solved and how international cooperation should be enhanced. Without effective rules to combat money laundering and terrorist financing, the soundness, integrity and stability of the financial system could be seriously compromised.
