Conference Day One: Tuesday, 20th August 2019

Tuesday, August 20th, 2019


3:00 PM Building a Successful Anti-Money Laundering Program Across Multiple International Jurisdictions

American Express is a US based company with a global footprint. Being based in multiple jurisdictions throughout the world means that the company has varying regulatory requirements it is obligated to meet. Furthermore the company does business in the majority of jurisdictions as a non-bank, without a supporting branch network. What are the opportunities and challenges faced by American Express in these circumstances and the lessons that other reporting entities faced with similar demands can learn.

This session will talk about:
  • When to centralise fundamental aspects of the AML Program such as transaction monitoring and your risk assessment
  • Setting global standards whilst taking account of varying or conflicting regulatory requirements
  • Meeting outsourcing and oversight requirements
  • Resourcing and systems capabilities across multiple jurisdictions
  • The customer experience – meeting regulatory requirements without a branch presence
