About the webinar

On March 10 the European Banking Federation (EBF) published a blueprint entitled “Lifting The Spell of Dirty Money”. The report identifies four priorities that need to be addressed. In concrete terms, the EBF suggests to:

  • HARMONISE the EU AML framework and strengthen its risk-based nature;
  • EMPOWER EU/EEA-wide supervision and law enforcement by strengthening the institutional architecture;
  • Enable all parties to effectively COOPERATE and share information;
  • BE SMARTER by leveraging new tools and technologies that can enhance the due diligence process.

In this session, we will be joined by Senior Policy Advisor Roger Kaiser, to discuss how the Covid-19 pandemic affects the recommendations from the EBF.
