Jersey Finance, in partnership with Themis, is delighted to host a Singapore Financial Crime Risk Assessment roundtable – a CPD accredited event – for finance firms in Jersey.

Understanding financial crime risk is a cornerstone of the fight against money laundering and the financing of terrorism and proliferation. The majority of the customers of the Jersey finance industry are non-resident therefore an area of focus is the industry’s approach to understanding and managing the financial crime risks and threats of conducting business in higher risk jurisdictions.

To help industry’s risk understanding, Jersey Finance engaged Themis, a financial crime specialist to jointly host a roundtable discussion event with experts focussed on Singapore.

The roundtable event provides an opportunity to hear from an expert panel of Singapore-focussed practitioners. During the roundtable, attendees will have the opportunity to ask the expert panel about key financial crime threats to Singapore and explore the implications for finance firm’s Jersey operations or firms with clients and partners based in Singapore.

This year, Jersey will be the subject of a significant evaluation by a body of the Council of Europe – MONEYVAL (Committee of Experts on the Evaluation of Anti-Money Laundering Measures and the Financing of Terrorism) – who conduct evaluations against international AML/CFT standards as set out by the Financial Action Task Force (the FATF). This process will involve an assessment of the role of the finance industry in understanding risks and applying preventative measures. This work is designed to both develop that understanding for industry and demonstrate our clear commitment to implementing international AML/CFT standards.

This event is highly recommended for representatives from compliance functions, in addition to other business areas, and we welcome multiple attendees from finance firms in Jersey.

Speakers will be announced in the coming weeks.
