AIMA APAC Webinar: Update on SFC Anti-Money Laundering Guidelines

Hong Kong Singapore China Japan Hong Kong Australia AML

AIMA APAC invites you to join our webinar on 23 February 2021.

The SFC issued a consultation in September 2020 in which it proposed to (i) implement Anti-Money Laundering Guidelines. This is a guidance for risk-based approach to AML in the securities sector issued by the Financial Action Task Force; (ii) consolidated into the Anti-Money Laundering Guidelines, the content of certain SFC circulars relating to anti-money laundering and (iii) importantly to address the recommendation made by FATF in its Mutual Evaluation Report of Hong Kong published in September 2019.  

The latter focuses on measures relating to cross border transactions, the strengthening of measures related to politically exposed persons, non-resident customers and customers with sanction exposure. 

Join us for a panel discussion on the likely impact of these changes on the asset management community in Hong Kong.
