Announcing BIS’ Workshop Series - 2010 edition

As one of our readers, you know our Workshop Series last year was a very well received initiative, the increasing number of participants from corporate and financial institutions speaking for itself.
We had three sessions in June, one in October and one in November, when we have approached the SEPA (Single Euro Payment Area) Initiative and the new European payment landscape; related themes were presented by our business experts and questions were answered.
The topics are more present than ever in the European financial market and they have developed, so, we decided to continue the Workshop Series, starting February this year.

We might add, besides up-dates on SEPA Project and PSD provisions and implications, other interesting and 'collateral' subjects, such as the Bank - Corporate business over SWIFT channel, Anti Money Laundering, Workers Remittances, Cash Reporting, Exceptions and Investigations and…you name it.

We would very much appreciate your personal & professional contribution on the most interesting topics to be included in our planned workshops! Share with us your experience, your concerns and your questions.
We'll make sure you'll get answers!
See you in February!

AML - Questions and....Opinions

We've been invited to stress opinions about Anti-Money Laundering solutions market.

Just a preview:
AML - Where is the driver?
Well, we think AML solutions' main driver is the regulation. Of course the financial institutions should be the first to be concerned about their customers' conduct & risks and they would like to use the same solution to answer to all related requirements, that is not only the anti money laundering provisions but also those related to applying international sanctions and risk management, accordingly. In the last years there were frequent changes to these regulations that in turn induced significant efforts to comply with from both commercial entities and solution providers.
AML - Which is the market ?
AML solutions are not addressing only banks and other financial institutions. The AML legal frame has to be applied also by other entities, legal or individuals within other fields of activity. Their needs for monitoring and reporting suspicious transactions could be different, from here arising the demand of having solutions tailored in order to meet customer requirements regarding operations and volumes.

Know, apply, work on it, have solutions!
