What's On

The Anti-Money Laundering and Counter-Terrorist Financing (Financial Institutions) (Amendment) Bill 2017 was passed in LegCo on 24 January 2018. With effect on 1 March 2018, Designated Non-Financial Businesses and Professions (DNFBPs), including solicitors, accountants, real estate agents, and trust or company service providers ("TCSPs"), are required to observe statutory customer due diligence ("CDD") and record-keeping requirements when engaging in specified transactions. Also, a new licensing regime for trust and company service providers (TCSPs) will come into operation, together with a new regime requiring companies to keep and maintain a Significant Controllers Register.

This seminar will focus on how DNFBPs shall respond and effectively manage compliance to the new requirements. Speakers will answer critical questions about enhancing AML/CFT regulation to DNFBPs, including a panel discussion from experts in different industries to share their views on how to manage this regulatory change.
