Recognized as one of Europe’s FinTech hubs, Vilnius will host a high-level international anti-financial crime conference with guests and speakers from five countries.
The Vilnius Financial Crime Fighters 2023 event will take place on 20 September at the Vilnius Tech Park and aims to bring together AML/CFT professionals from various sectors, including financial institutions, regulators, law enforcement and technology experts from Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, the British Isles and Portugal, to share knowledge, insights, and strategies to combat money laundering and related financial crimes.
The conference is organized by AMLYZE, a leading RegTech company specializing in anti-financial crime solutions for FinTechs, neo-banks and crypto businesses. It is backed by the Lithuanian Financial Crime Investigation Service and organized in partnership with Ellex Valiunas, an internationally recognized law firm from the Baltics.
“Our event will bring together prominent experts, thought leaders and industry professionals from around Europe to explore the latest anti-financial crime and compliance trends. As the regulatory landscape becomes increasingly challenging, there is a clear demand for the community to come together and discuss the latest developments. It will undoubtedly be one of the most important anti-financial crime events in the country this year, with thousands of highly skilled AML/CFT professionals in attendance and the country’s ambitions to attract the European Union’s Anti-Money Laundering Authority (AMLA) to establish its office in the country,” said Alexandre Pinot, Co-Founder and Head of Innovation and Strategy at AMLYZE.
Among the topics to be discussed at the conference are the long-awaited implementation of the MiCA regulation, the emergence and evolutions of the banking as a service (BaaS) model, the upcoming third Payment Services Directive (PSD3) and the urgent need for information sharing mechanisms between financial market participants.
Among the distinguished speakers and panellists at the conference will be representatives of the Council of Europe’s Moneyval, the Bank of Lithuania, the Bank of Latvia, the Financial Crimes Investigation Service in Lithuania, The Center of Excellence in Anti-Money Laundering in Lithuania, the Ministry of Finance of the Republic of Lithuania, Financial Intelligence Unit in Estonia, SEB, Swedbank and other companies and institutions.
