Given the success of the initial series of seminars and a clear indication from the profession that more information and assistance would be both needed and welcome, ADLS has developed the AML/CFT Toolkit Series II. Like the first, this series of seminars is designed to provide practitioners with the tools to understand their AML/CFT obligations and gain insights into how to approach and manage those obligations with confidence and in the most time-efficient manner.
The series will provide practical information about how to deal with audits and assurance requirements, how to submit Suspicious Activity Reports (SARs) and Prescribed Transaction Reports (PTRs) to the Financial Intelligence Unit (FIU), insights into some of the issues practitioners may face with advice from professionals already complying with the AML/CFT regime, and an opportunity to hear from and engage with the AML/CFT supervisor, the Department of Internal Affairs.
Each session will be co-presented by Fiona Hall and other AML/CFT experts. Fiona is a barrister and solicitor specialising in this area, with personal experience as an AML Compliance Officer with primary responsibility for the development and implementation of AML programmes for entities within a substantial designated business group.
In the AML/CFT Toolkit Series II, Fiona will co-present with a compliance expert, the FIU, professionals already dealing with AML/CFT compliance and the Department of Internal Affairs.
