Streamlining KYC: What solutions can RegTech offer

As Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and Countering Terrorist Financing (CTF) regulations become increasingly stringent and complex and their enforcement increasingly punitive, many firms that are relying on largely manual KYC processes are finding it harder and more costly to keep up.

Fortunately, help is at hand in the form of latest technological developments in e-KYC which are streamlining the end-to-end KYC process and making it more cost and labour efficient.   Find out more about latest trends in regulatory technology is helping firms to effectively and efficiently manage their KYC to better address both internal risk management and external regulatory requirements.

AML audits – are you asking the right questions?

An enterprise-wide AML risk management program is more than Know Your Customer. Asking the right questions as part of a meaningful audit of the AML governance framework dramatically impacts the usefulness of the results. Dawn’s session will consider the practicalities of the AML audit and how to conduct an audit that will provide meaningful outputs which can be fed back into the ongoing enterprise-wide risk assessment, rather than simply creating a table of audit points to close and forget about.

 


A FCP professional and the current Deputy MLRO at Arbuthnot Latham & Co., Limited, Dawn’s 19 years’ experience combines the practical application of FCP and AML as a hands on practitioner in a number of financial services firms, and a focus on thought leadership through her work as a Course Director for the ICA, covering multiple financial crime prevention disciplines at all levels from beginner through to Board level and for a variety of audiences including the wider regulated sector, regulators and law enforcement with engagements from the UK to the Philippines and many countries in between.

In conjunction with the International Compliance Association, Dawn’s session will consider the practicalities of the AML audit and how to conduct an audit that will provide meaningful results that can be fed back into the ongoing enterprise-wide risk assessment rather than simply creating a table of audit points to close.

How do I make RegTech work for my business? A non-technical discussion about implementing compliance software.

Compliance professionals often have to be a jack of all trades in our efforts to build and maintain a best in class compliance program - and this increasingly includes navigating the complexities of RegTech implementation.

Learn lessons from our implementation of two online software solutions in a global business. Consider which business functions are needed to support the project; learn some key tech terminology; discuss tactics for employee engagement; and get excited about the possibilities for reducing compliance risk with better data and reporting.

Do businesses need a Director of Compliance?

As the prominence of the Compliance function continues to rise, the regulated sector is beginning to see the increased creation of the Director of Compliance position. However, many businesses below the upper echelons of the FTSE 100 still choose not to have Compliance representation at their most senior level. Indeed, of the upper quartile FTSE 100 very few have a dedicated Compliance position. Shouldn’t Compliance be as important as Marketing, Sales, or Finance in terms of Board prioritisation? In this talk, Paul Asare-Archer, a Fellow of the ICA, and Telefonica UK’s first ever Director of Compliance, talks about his own career journey, and what he feels are the benefits that Telefonica UK (O2) has derived from having a Director of Compliance. Are these benefits transferable across any business? Or is this dependent on the effectiveness of the Compliance function, personality of the Compliance Officer and culture of your business? This talk will challenge your own perspectives and create a discussion point as to whether Compliance should now sit on every Board.

Compliance in the legal sector or financial services - two sides of the same coin?

Samantha will use her unique personal perspective to explore what the legal and financial services sectors can learn from one another, and how developing an effective professional network as your career develops can add real value to the modern compliance practitioner.

 


Samantha Pointon is a solicitor with 28 years post qualification experience. Originally a litigator she moved into compliance following successfully obtaining a diploma in anti money laundering through the International Compliance Association.

She has worked in compliance for over 15 years both in a local authority and in private practice, as Director of Risk and Compliance, MLRO and COLP.

Simon joined the ICA in 2011 just as he moved into a second line risk and compliance role responsible for Digital Banking within Lloyds Banking Group. He attained a distinction in the ICA Compliance Diploma and, now as a Fellow of the ICA continues to operate in LBG where he oversees the Group’s Transformation division responsible for delivering all major change programmes.

Over the past 12 years he specialised in risk & compliance roles, working in both 1st and 2nd lines of defence. Simon started his career in the branch network and states “having worked in branches, customers are part of my DNA; this is something that I never lose sight of and, in my view, is an increasingly important principle for all risk and compliance professionals. In a digital world where financial services is facing huge transformation driven by technological advances, it would be easy to feel removed from the decisions we make and the impact that they have on customers”. He enjoys the tensions that working within a dynamic, fast changing environment demands, and adopts an agile and pragmatic approach to compliance & risk management.

Simon's relationship skills and ability to manage conflict under pressure are best demonstrated by his involvement with the UK Challenge, an iconic, televised annual sporting event for major corporates where he has been the Independent Arbiter for over 10 years. “Handling conflict from senior executives, applying rules in real time is challenging but great fun, and probably not too dissimilar to the day job!” he says.

Having recently passed the 30 year milestone with LBG, Simon’s decided to take a well-earned break and will be starting a six-month sabbatical in May. This sees him attempt the c500mile pilgrimage along the Camino de Santiago where he hopes to continue to be ‘compliant’ and follow the right path!

How risky is the third sector?

The third sector encompasses community and voluntary organisations (including registered charities) social enterprises, mutuals and co-operatives. Charities and voluntary organisations are often considered as high risk customer types by financial institutions. Conversely, third sector organisations (such as mutuals) often consider themselves low risk for financial crime. So who is right? Trevor is a NED at a Building Society, Quality Director at the Fairbanking Foundation and Executive Director for a risk advisory business, and will be taking us through the different perspectives, based on his own experiences.

Is it time to look beyond systems and controls?

Using his personal experience of the LIBOR investigation as a backdrop, Tyrone will be discussing the evolving nature of risk, where and how it can manifest, the cultural implications and why we need to look past systems and controls to the roles of both first and second line staff.

 


Tyrone has held senior positions for over 25 years in the financial sector, predominantly in the Anti-Money Laundering & Regulatory Compliance space. He has held the MLRO, Compliance Oversight Officer and a Nominated Officer positions – registration with the Financial Conduct Authority, the US National Futures Authority and the National Crimes Agency (formerly SOCA).

Tyrone has been involved in many AML regulatory reviews and a high profile financial criminal case. His in-depth knowledge and practical experience of implementing anti-money laundering & counter-terrorist financing systems and controls has proven invaluable to firms. This has never been more important when regulators and law enforcement agencies demand that regulated firms can demonstrate that they are meeting their requirements to reduce the opportunity of their firm being used for money laundering and its predicate crimes.

Tyrone holds the following qualifications:

  • Currently studying for his MSc Law and Financial Crime (The University of Law)
  • Professional Postgraduate Diploma in Financial Crime Compliance - Prof.PgDip(FCC)
  • BSc Hons in Management and Compliance - The University of Manchester
  • Diploma in Anti-Money Laundering – Dip(AML)
  • Diploma Financial Crime Prevention – Dip(FinCrime)

  • FICA - Fellow of the International Compliance Association
  • Certified Professional - International Compliance Association

What role should compliance play in digitisation initiatives?

Compliance professionals are increasingly required to assess digitisation initiatives and provide advice and/or sign-off. But is there enough help available in terms of understanding of the innovation types such as Application Programme Interfaces (APIs) and Artificial Intelligence, and the risks they pose from a business and regulatory standpoint? Vivek will help guide you through some of the key risk themes and considerations you face when in a digital change situation.



After completing my LLB Law and LLM in International and European Law, I got straight into banking. After my initial training with Halifax Bank of Scotland, I joined HSBC and was with them for almost 15 years. At HSBC, I worked initially in the Wealth Management space in London but the majority of my tenure was in International Compliance in a number of jurisdictions including the UK, Sri Lanka, India, United Arab Emirates and the USA.

My experience in Compliance has been quite wide, ranging from setting up and leading the Compliance function in the outsourced entities in Sri Lanka and India, to managing the regional Securities Services Compliance function in the Middle East and Africa region and subsequently in North and South America. After a relatively short stint with Bank of New York Mellon in London, I joined Standard Chartered Bank in May 2017 to lead the Regional TB Compliance team in the Africa and Middle East region.

I hold an International Diploma in Compliance and I am a Fellow Member of the International Compliance Association (FICA). I am also a US Certified Corporate Trust Specialist (CCTS) and a Member of the American Institute of Certified Bankers.
