International Conference on Financial Crime and Terrorism Financing (IFCTF) 2022
The International Conference on Financial Crime and Terrorism Financing (IFCTF) 2022 held on 26 – 27 July 2022 at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre focused on the crucial role of the financial sector in reshaping its defence and mitigation measures in the fight against financial crime and terrorism financing, especially in the age of COVID, where reliance on financial technology grows in tandem with the emergence of new digital and environmental crime.
Organised by the Asian Institute of Chartered Bankers (AICB) and its Compliance Officers’ Networking Group (CONG), and supported by Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM), Securities Commission Malaysia and the Labuan Financial Services Authority, IFCTF 2022 provided a timely platform for the anti-money laundering/counter financing of terrorism (AML/CFT) and anti-financial crime community to meet and have crucial conversations on the pervasive threat posed by financial crimes, share insights and potential solutions to issues and challenges faced, and develop a comprehensive approach to combating financial crime and AML/CFT through strong cooperation across the global financial community.
Themed “The New Frontier of Compliance: Adapt, Transform, Collaborate”, the Conference gathered over 50 global financial leaders and industry experts from across Europe, the US and Asia Pacific, who shared deep insights and perspectives on the latest megatrends and developments in financial crime and AML/CFT landscape, strategies and policies to mitigate crime risks, emerging technologies and digitalisation in compliance, and the importance of ethics, integrity and collaboration in building robust defences against these crimes.
IFCTF 2022 drew over 1,000 delegates from local and international financial institutions for the first in-person conference after a two-year hiatus due to COVID-19.
