New era in the fight against financial crime

International and national efforts are being made to redesign the regulatory approach to combating financial crime. Both at EU level and in Germany, there are many gears in motion that need to mesh smoothly in order to bring together all the requirements of supervisory authorities, obliged entities and law enforcement authorities.

The first event of the ACAMS Germany Chapter in 2024 on April 22nd gave an overview of the latest and expected developments regarding obliged entities, and the future design of national and international public-private partnerships involving all stakeholders to develop an effective architecture for the prevention of financial crime.
