The BAFT Financial Crime Compliance Workshop – Abu Dhabi is an all-day deep dive training on financial crime topics, with special focus on sanctions and correspondent banking.

Learning Objectives
At the end of the workshop, attendees will:

• Understand the evolution of economic sanctions programs, which have become more complex over time, and offer strategies to protect against inadvertent and deliberate evasions of sanctions regime requirements, as well as consider controls to mitigate the risk of sanctions breaches.
• Learn about the importance of AML National Risk Assessment as key process and document to prepare for FATF Mutual Evaluation Assessment, and steps to conduct a proper assessment.
• Enable bankers and compliance personnel to understand the regulatory requirements regarding customer identification and due diligence.
• Understand recent developments in governance and optimization of automated transaction monitoring systems for both AML/CFT and sanctions compliance, as well as the importance of the client name screening.
• Get an update on what’s happening in the industry, with special focus on the region, resulting in de-risking of accounts.
• Learn about the new BAFT Respondents’ Playbook. The playbook documents expectations of correspondent banks and best practices for respondent banks, which if properly implemented, should result in new or retain existing relationships.
