New anti-corruption regulations and advancements in technology have put significant pressure on banks and corporations to get their compliance right. Have their third-party due diligence programs evolved enough to keep up with these changes? Especially at a time when ‘fake news’ is a hot topic and managing false positive results creates new challenges?

In this webinar, we’ll explore what banks and corporations can do to improve their existing due diligence programs to mitigate risk and to identify not just ownership, but also where the power and control is in an organization.

We will explore:

  • The complexity of ownership structures and understanding who the ultimate owner is
  • Why is it interesting to look where the power and control is and how can it be done?
  • Third-party due diligence programs and their evolution in the new regulatory environment
  • The wide array of available RegTech solutions and how to make the right choice for your organization
  • Best practices of risk assessment and data management

Who should attend:

  • Professionals at financial institutions and corporations involved in:
    • Customer due diligence and enhanced due diligence
    • KYC on-boarding and review
    • AML compliance
    • Sanctions screening
    • Transaction monitoring
  • Advisers, law firms, consultants
