Whether for client on-boarding, know-your client (KYC) procedures, or for third party screening, due diligence is an integral component of risk management and compliance for financial institutions. At the same time, the approach to financial crime prevention is being driven by the emergence of new threats and vulnerabilities. The new challenges range from the changing structures of organized crime groups and new technologies that facilitate the proliferation of financial crime. At this exclusive dinner event, James Swenson from Thomson Reuters will elaborate on these threats and share his experiences on best practices for staying alert and anticipating risks before it is too late.
