The Steering Committee welcomes up to 48 senior in-house practitioners and leading advisors who specialize in financial crime and sanctions risk for financial institutions. Participants are drawn from across the United Kingdom and Europe with a complement of selected representatives from abroad.
Using candid, seminar-style discussions at this annual meeting, the group shares the most pressing issues they face and examine trends and developments across jurisdictions to learn how others address these problems and work together to identify solutions.
This elite group, comprised of experts in the field, personally nominates all invitees and develops the Agenda, which forms the basis of our discussions.
