AML-CFT Event | April 4, 2022

On July 20, 2021, the European Commission presented a package of legislative proposals to strengthen the EU’s anti-money laundering and combating the financing of terrorism (“AML/CFT”) rules. The package consists of four legislative proposals:

– a regulation establishing a new EU AML/CFT authority;
– an AML/CFT Regulation, containing directly applicable rules, including on customer due diligence and beneficial ownership;
– a Sixth AML/CFT Directive, replacing the current Directive 2015/849/EU, and containing provisions that will be transposed into national law, such as rules on national supervisory authorities and financial intelligence units in member states;
– a revision of Regulation 2015/847/EU on fund transfers to ensure traceability of crypto asset transfers.

This event will be animated by:

  • Raphaelle Stremsdoerfer, AML/CFT Policy Expert, ABE
  • Alain Bruneau, Global Head of Compliance, Natixis
  • Adelaïde Fischmeister, Compliance Project Manager & Head of Financial Security, AMAFI
