Powering A More Secure Bankingunwiredcp
The $5 billion 1MDB scandal in Malaysia that first came to light in 2015, brought sharp focus on Anti-Money Laundering (AML) regulations and their implementation in South East Asia.
Leading experts and organization’s estimate that the current global pandemic has boosted money laundering globally after a sharp spike in online banking. A large number of digital banking transactions were accompanied by rising transactions from unverifiable identities. This is expected to have substantially augmented an illegal activity that was already worth $1.6 trillion before the onset of the pandemic.
Since regular bank transactions and, export trade, where banks again come into the picture, are key routes to money laundering, AML regulations by central banks, and their implementation have rightly become the focus of banking regulators, especially those in South East Asia.
Combatting money laundering effectively and implementing AML regulations comes with its own set of challenges. The webinar will discuss these challenges.
