Accountants are subject persons in terms of the Prevention of Money Laundering and Financing of Terrorism Regulations. This places on them the obligations emerging from the PMLFTR and expanded upon in the Implementing Procedures, which can be quite daunting for the small and medium sized practitioner. The questions often asked are - where do I start? where should I be giving priority?
Objectives of the session
The session will be an interactive one and the speaker intends to elicit a debate on some of the topics to ensure that the discussion is a lively one and relevant for the small practitioner, enabling him/her to take away relevant thoughts and ideas of how to improve on their AML procedures
Topics on the agenda
The session will cover the 6 pillars of a proper AML regime, namely CDD, risk assessment, training, internal and external reporting, and record keeping, as they apply to a small non banking subject person.
Juanita Bencini is an ex-KPMG Malta partner where for 17 years she headed the Risk Consulting Advisory practice. Today, she works as a consultant to the financial services industry and is a professional director on boards of regulated entities. Juanita was the first female partner at KPMG and was the first female President of the Institute of Financial Services Practitioners in Malta. She remains active today as Chair of the IFSP's AML Committee and Chair of the AML Committee at the Malta Institute of Accountants.
