Emerging financial crime risks and handling financial crime risk incidents

3 November 2020 | 14.30 - 15.30 | ON24 webinar


Our Financial Crime team will be hosting a live webinar to discuss those financial crime risks on which the FCA will have greatest focus when lockdown measures lift and we adapt to a new working environment.

Following on from FCA guidance issued this year, our experts will discuss the financial crime risks to your firms and how these have the potential to cause harm to customers and markets. Some of these risks have been triggered specifically by the Covid-19 crisis, while other known risks have been exacerbated during this period.

Partners Michael Ruck and Angela Hayes, and solicitor Jemma Shanks will focus on the key risks that the FCA will scrutinise and how firms can put themselves on the front foot by proactively identifying and, where appropriate, remediating issues. The risks include:

  • customer onboarding;
  • inadequate due diligence;
  • regulatory expectations being applied with hindsight;
  • understanding of relevant technology; and
  • the lack of tailored financial crime systems and controls.

The webinar will end with a live Q&A session where you will be given the opportunity to ask questions of our experts.
