AML Focus Group

The purpose of the AML Focus Group is to provide a platform for those charged with AML and Financial Crime oversight to get information on the latest regulatory and market developments and to discuss matters of common interest with peers.

The relevant regulators (e.g. FIC, PA and FSCA) regularly attend and present at these sessions. It is open to members and non-members. The working groups that run under the auspices of this focus group are open to members only. However, feedback on their activities is provided at the larger AML focus group.
