Episode 175: The birth of AML/CFT

An Introduction to Anti-Money Laundering & Countering Financing of Terrorism


This week Faisal Khan sits down with Dr. Mara Wesseling (our newest co-host) and we discuss the world of compliance.

Our first show touches upon what compliance stands for? and who needs to do it? How big and relevant in today's compliance industry? What to make of the unhappy marriage of placing AML and CFT under one legal umbrella? The show also looks into the history of the AML/CFT legal framework and what makes it important now?

By reflecting upon the past 30 years of AML regulation and almost 20 years of the War on Terrorism Financing, the effectiveness question remains on the table and the call for a new approach - AML/CFT 2.0 - becomes louder.
