FFECON19: Mindful Financial Crime Prevention in a Digitally Enabled World
27th November 2019. 30 Euston Square, London, NW1 2FB
Originally described as “disrupters” of the financial services sector, FinTechs are increasingly playing a significant role within the financial crime prevention community. The tools developed and harnessed by FinTechs have also showcased how innovative technology can be harnessed to detect illicit actors. FinTechs are clearly no longer the “new kids on the block”!
As the FinTech sector continues to evolve and grow, so too will the financial crime risks they face, along with increasing demands placed on their compliance staff. How will FinTechs successfully navigate this next stage?
This year’s FFE conference will look at how FinTechs are taking on these challenges, where they’ve succeeded and – in some instances – where they wished they had done things differently. This year’s event will also incorporate a broader look at financial crime prevention and consider emerging financial threats and the need for nimble tactics to address them.
The FinTech industry has prided itself on its “customer experience” focus. We’ll be exploring this further by considering the ethical use of data, the causes of crime and those who are impacted by it. Is it possible to take a “mindful” approach towards financial crime prevention? Join us on the 27th of November and find out.
