The Pandora Papers and the cost of getting compliance wrong

The recently leaked Pandora Papers exposed the scale of financial crime and money laundering taking place across the globe.

Beyond the scandalous headlines, financial firms are now realising non-compliance with financial crime regulations can have material, detrimental impact on their operations if they do not take simple, fundamental steps to improve their compliance processes.

In this webinar Dr Henry Balani (Global Head of Industry & Regulatory Affairs, Encompass), is joined by Howard Wimpory (KYC Transformation Director, Encompass) and Pawneet Abramowski (Founder & Principal, PARC Solutions LLC) for a thought-provoking discussion that will cover:

  • Highlights from the Pandora Papers leak
  • The cost of getting it wrong, drawing on insights from the whitepaper recently published by Encompass and financial crime agency, Themis
  • Practical steps financial institutions and other regulated companies can take
  • The potential benefits on offer for getting it right drawing on Dr Balani’s research on the impact the EU's Fourth Anti-Money Laundering Directive (4AMLD) has had on bank valuations
