2018 Anti-Money Laundering Conference

The 2018 Anti-Money Laundering Conference took place on 28 February 2018 at the Stamford Plaza in Auckland and was attended by a wide range of practitioners from the legal, finance and accounting sectors from across New Zealand. The one-day event provided practical, step-by-step guidance to entities captured by Phase 2 of the Anti-Money Laundering & Countering Financing of Terrorism (AML/CFT) Act amendments, with implementation dates as early as 1 July 2018. Delegates were provided the opportunity to engage with those responsible for enforcement of the new regulations, as well as experts in the implementation of effective AML programmes. Speakers included the Financial Intelligence Unit of the New Zealand Police, the Department of Internal Affairs as well as AML compliance specialists, consultants and lawyers, touching on all aspects of effectively implementing an AML programme and complying with the new regime.

We’d like to thank the speakers and attendees for their insight and input and for making the day a success. We look forward to seeing you at a future Thomson Reuters event. Should you have any questions about the conference, please contact eventsnz@thomsonreuters.com.
