The battle never ends

Anti-money laundering will once again be the main topic of Global Compliance Solution’s 7th Annual Anti-Money Laundering, Compliance and Financial Crime Conference this month at the Grand Cayman Marriott Beach Resort following the theme of The Never Ending Battle of the increased regulatory expectations.  

Global Compliance Solutions’ 7th Annual Anti-Money Laundering, Compliance and Financial Crime Conference will present once again many interesting topics in the area of regulatory compliance and anti-money laundering, as well as a focus on terrorist financing.

“This event has grown year-on-year since its infancy and this year’s conference is set to be no exception. We have 16 international speakers who are experts in their respective fields, which will be fantastic for our 150+ delegates,” said Karen O’Brien, managing partner of GCS. 

The conference set to take place on Thursday 13 and Friday 14 October, 2011, at the Grand Cayman Marriott Beach Resort follows the theme of “The Never Ending Battle”, illustrative of the increased regulatory expectations, international scrutiny and evolving AML/Financial Crime typologies that financial and compliance professionals are facing today. 

Speakers at this year’s event will include  

  • Kevin Stephenson of World Bank who will examine ‘the Barriers to Asset Recovery’ and the role of World Bank in this area:  
  • Sven Stumbauer, director of KMPG LLC, Florida, will be discussing ‘New Developments in Global Anti-Money Laundering and Compliance’:  
  • Karl Kasca will offer an interactive insight into ‘Leveraging the Power of Information – the Internet and Social Media’: 

This year’s guest moderator is Declan Hill, an investigative journalist, who specialises in the study of organised crime and international issues.

His recent book ‘The Fix: Soccer and Organised Crime’ examined the corruption at the heart of international football and has become a best-seller in 14 languages.
