Strengthening Financial Crime Risk Management through Innovation, Collaboration, and Technology


As financial crime increases in sophistication, measures to tackle criminal activity must keep pace. The Financial Crime Summit - London is where top practitioners from the world’s leading banks and other financial institutions, and across all business divisions, meet regulators, consultants and solution-providers to discuss the future of combatting financial crime.

Plenary sessions will highlight how:

  • Future-Proofing the Financial Crime Function
  • Defining Expectations for Banks in Public/Private Collaboration Efforts
  • What Comes First in the Financial Crime Function- the Team or the Tech?

Throughout the day, there will be breakout streams drilling down into the latest thinking and practices for Anti-Money laundering (AML) and Know Your Customer (KYC), Emerging Threats and Technology, Sanctions, and Fraud Risk, with plentiful opportunity for practitioners to network with their peers at private roundtable discussions.

The Financial Crime Summit - London 2023 - Post Event Report

Artificial Intelligence: the new 4th line of defence in the fight against financial crime


The overwhelming theme running through the day’s many panels and interactive roundtables was how new technologies, especially those incorporating different varieties of ML and AI, have evolved sufficiently to offer very significant upgrades to a range of core KYC and anti-money laundering (AML) tasks. And banks are finally buying them.
