OBJECTIVES

The Asian Institute of Chartered Bankers (AICB) and its Compliance Officers’ Networking Group (CONG) organised the International Conference on Financial Crime and Terrorism Financing (IFCTF) 2022, supported by Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM), Securities Commission Malaysia and the Labuan Financial Services Authority. With the theme “The New Frontier of Compliance: Adapt, Transform, Collaborate,” the conference highlighted the critical role of the financial sector in re-evaluating and improving its defence and mitigation measures against financial crime and terrorism financing, particularly in the age of COVID, where financial technology usage is increasing along with the emergence of new digital and environmental crimes.

CHALLENGES

IFCTF 2022 was returning to an in-person conference after a two-year hiatus due to COVID-19. There were numerous activities during the two-day event with over 50 global financial leaders and industry experts from across Europe, the US, and Asia Pacific to share their perspectives and insights on the latest trends, strategies, and policies in financial crime and AML/CFT. The organizer had to navigate the logistical and practical challenges, also to develop a timely and effective virtual event platform for the community to discuss and network.
