  • 1. The evolving role of the compliance / MLRO officers

With increased scrutiny and regulations, the role of the compliance / MLRO officers has evolved significantly, from a reactive stance, in some instances, to a more proactive stance, making the role one of the most important functions in regulated businesses. Together, we will look at understanding the main provisions introduced for compliance/ MLRO professionals and the importance of continuous professional development training.

  • 2.  The Unified AML Directive – what does it mean in the EU context and for Malta

The plan is comprised of key pillars, such as implementation of existing rules; a single EU rule book;  EU Level supervision and a cooperation mechanism between FI units. Together, we will take a birds eye view on the proposed Unified AML Directive and what we can expect.
