GDPR

With G Day – the 25th May 120 days behind us, what impact has the new GDPR regulation had in real terms on the AML and financial Crime sector? Are financial institutions swamped with SAR requests? Are there pending prosecutions? Has GDPR slowed or stopped the deluge of spam and nuisance calls? Or is it all an overblown panic? Is it too early to tell? Should we watch this space?

Frozen Money and Breach of Mandate: the MLRO Fights Back

The case law on SARs and disgruntled customers tells a sorry story of rightly suspicious banks and MLROs constrained by tipping off provisions from telling the customer why he cannot access his money. Threats and civil claims by customers can follow. And if they do sue, they can end up being excluded from court in procedures which one judge described earlier this year as Kafkaesque. This session examines these issues through the process of the trial of a bank sued by its customer for failing to act on his instructions.
