(PRESS RELEASE) — The North American and Caribbean basin financial sector will meet in coming days for a significant anti-money laundering (AML) event.
The Florida International Bankers Association (FIBA) is staging its 19th AML Compliance Conference in Miami, Florida, USA, March 11th to 13th. The theme of this year’s gathering is Shaping The Future Of The Fight Against Financial Crime.
The event will be attended by decision-makers and compliance professionals from the Caribbean, USA, Canada, and Mexico. Among them will be Ms. Wendy Delmar, Chief Executive Officer of the Caribbean Association of Banks (CAB) Inc. She will be joined by Dalton Lee, chairman of the CAB board. Founded in 1974, CAB is the representative body and recognised voice for banks and other financial institutions in the Caribbean.
Ms. Delmar and Mr. Lee will engage in three days of information-exchange and collaboration with the brightest minds at the crossroads of financial services and regulation.
The experts, innovators, and thought-leaders taking the FIBA AML stage in 2019 will include representatives from CIBC First Caribbean International Bank, Republic Bank Limited, the Central Bank of The Bahamas, and the Eastern Caribbean Central Bank (ECCB).
Two of the key sessions for Caribbean participants will be the Caribbean Roundtable, which will discuss adoption of regulatory reforms in regional banking, and Fighting Human Trafficking With Financial Data.
Candice Huggins, Chief Compliance Officer, CIBC First Caribbean, will sit on the Caribbean Roundtable panel, whilst Trevor Brathwaite, Deputy Governor of the ECCB, will lead the Human Trafficking panel.
Now in its 19th year, the FIBA AML Compliance Conference started as an intimate gathering of like-minded compliance professionals and has evolved into the preeminent community of leaders and decision-makers in financial services and beyond.
Designed to encourage an open and honest dialogue between financial institutions and the regulators charged with their oversight, #fibaAML19 is a unique opportunity for the essential idea-sharing and collaboration our industry needs in this rapidly evolving landscape.
