10TH INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON FINANCIAL CRIME AND TERRORISM FINANCING (IFCTF) 2018 will be held at Shangrila Hotel, KL, on 30th and 31st Oct 2018, organized by Asian Institute of Finance.
The theme of the conference is “The Rising Voice of Compliance – Towards Greater Governance and Transparency”. The 10th IFCTF conference is planned to explore topics on current events and new trends in these areas and practicable approaches within the realm of compliance.
Globalization has had its unintended consequences of creating serious challenges to financial regulators and law enforcement officers. The Financial Services sector as the first line of defence in dealing with customers are tasked with the grave responsibility of protecting the integrity and stability of the domestic and international financial system. The global growth of expanded cross-border and speedier alternate payment networks has created huge challenges for financial institutions to keep-up with the criminals. The financial services sector is compelled to invest in new systems, technology and people to enable them to prepare for their role in assisting law enforcement agencies and government bodies in disrupting criminals’ plans.
Malaysia as a member of the Financial Action Task Force is consistently demonstrating its commitment in embracing international best practices in insulating its financial system from money launderers and terrorism financiers. With ‘New Malaysia’, the bar is expected to be raised further with the infusion of greater governance and transparency in all sectors of the enforcement agencies, government bodies and financial services sector.
