ACAMS, the Association of Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialists, has for several years partnered with the New Zealand Police Financial Intelligence Unit to present a major conference at Te Papa, Wellington.
Gary is delighted to again co-chair (as ACAMS Australasia Chapter Board member) the largest financial crime conference held in either NZ or Australia. The programme will bring compliance, legal and government agency teams together to learn from top quality international and domestic speakers.
The dates for the 2018 event have been confirmed:
- 3-4 October 2018 for the main plenary conference
- the day before, 2 October, for AML Supervisors’ separate workshops
Our joint venture in 2017, under the theme of “Private Sector Engagement/Partnership”, encouraged regulated business parties to collaborate law enforcement agencies to reduce financial crime. The event was hugely successful, with over 300 attendees at Wellington.
Two particular highlights for Gary were conducting an interview with an international journalist who worked inside the Panama Papers exposé, and presenting on recent enforcement trends including the high-profile AUSTRAC Australian case against CBA Bank.
