How to tackle FICA and win the battle on Anti-Money Laundering

Sign up for the Financial Crime Conference to learn more about the latest financial crime and money laundering schemes taking place in South Africa, enabling you to safeguard your business.

As technology advances and new markets are created, money launderers, terrorists, and proliferation financiers are finding increasingly innovative ways to use the latest systems, tools, and markets to evade detection.

Businesses cannot afford to lower their guard in the face of this persistent threat of financial crime, as authorities have identified many industries as vulnerable to exploitation by money launderers, terrorists, and proliferation financiers.

The industries at risk encompass a wide spectrum, including financial intermediaries, credit providers, legal practitioners, real estate agents, and dealers of high-value goods. These industries are at a higher risk simply because of the products and services they offer.

Whether they are moving money through bank accounts, changing currency, sending money offshore or selling luxury cars, jewellery or properties, many companies fail to recognise their potential involvement in illegal schemes.

Fight back against financial crime

Financial crime has far-reaching consequences for the economy, society and governance and South Africa’s complex financial landscape presents an attractive environment for criminals seeking to exploit vulnerabilities.

Considering the negative effects of financial crime and South Africa’s susceptibility to it, the fight against financial crime in SA has never been more important.
