Gary headed to Sydney on 11 April as invited speaker at the Australian Regulatory Summit by Thomson Reuters. His main panel presentation was on the topic “Silicon, cyber and the super ministry: the new order for financial crime compliance” but attendees were also keen to get Gary’s thoughts on implementation of Tranche II AML in New Zealand (boldly going where Australia so far dares not!)
Now in its 6th year, the Australian Regulatory Summit is the key regulatory event for risk and compliance leadership across banks, financial institutions, regulators, exchanges and industry bodies in Australia. It explores annually the latest regulatory, compliance and financial crime updates, and the use of technology to navigate an environment where regulatory burden and compliance pressures continue to grow. It was attended by almost 600 senior risk and compliance officers, on an invitation-only basis.
With the Australian banking commission of inquiry rolling in the background, and Cambridge Analytica and Mark Zuckerberg testifying to Senate giving us plenty to talk about, this was a very topical and wide ranging conference!
Gary’s thoughts on Tranche II implementation were picked up and reported by the GRC Institute magazine available here.
