Mónica MacGregor presented at the symposium following the issuance of FATF’s January 2018 Anti-money laundering and counter-terrorist financing measures – Mexico, Fourth Round Mutual Evaluation Report. She relied on her experience assisting in the prosecution and defense of systemic AML and terrorist-financing deficiencies at institutions in the US and abroad, as well as her experience serving as in-house AML and sanctions officer and remediating a consent order, and other administrative measures, to address key stakeholders in Mexico’s fight against money laundering, terrorist financing, and corruption. She addressed risks in Latin America and discuss best practices for financial institutions and designated non-financial businesses and professionals to employ in the mitigation of said risks.
Ms. MacGregor was also interviewed by the magazine Puntos Finos on the role of due diligence in AML and how to ensure that compliance programs are aligned with risk profiles.
Ernesto Carrasco moderated a panel on “The Key Role of Private Industry in the Fight Against Corruption.”
BRG was a sponsor of the event.
