Saint Lucia, Friday 25 February, 2022: Over 1,000 bankers, financial services professionals, regulators, and service providers from across the Americas are expected to be in attendance at the 2022 FIBA AML Compliance Conference, 28 February to 2 March at the Trump National Doral in Miami, Florida, USA. The event is being hosted by FIBA, recently rename the Financial & International Business Association, and previously known as the Florida International Bankers Association. The conference will be attended by the chairperson and CEO of the Caribbean Association of Banks (CAB) Inc., Mr. Dalton Lee and Ms. Wendy Delmar, who are also slated to be part of a Caribbean Roundtable.
The FIBA AML Compliance Conference, billed as the most important event for the Financial Industry, will help banks navigate new rules and regulations. The conference will connect regulators, law enforcement, and industry experts in a 3-day information exchange and collaboration, with over 300 financial institutions likely to be participating. FIBA is a non-profit trade association dedicated to cultivating excellence in International Banking.
Mr. Lee and Ms. Delmar will engage in information exchange and collaboration with the brightest minds at the crossroads of financial services and regulation. The experts, innovators, and thought-leaders taking the FIBA AML stage will include representatives from FINCEN, Promontory, Kaufman Rossin, Charles Schwab, the United States Securities and Excchange Commission, Scotiabank, Google Cloud, and Wells Fargo.
On 3 March, FIBA will be hosting the Caribbean Roundtable, which will include Mr. Lee and Ms. Delmar. The session will open with a presentation of the report by the Caribbean Initiative’s Financial Inclusion Task Force – “Financial De-Risking in the Caribbean: The US Implications and What Needs to be Done” and follow with discussion. De-risking, or the loss of correspondent banking relations, is an issue on which CAB – the recognised voice for the Caribbean banking and financial services sector – has been researching and advocating for several years now.
