McCarthy Tétrault Advance™: Anti-Money Laundering De-risking in Financial Services




March 1, 2018

Time of event


The issue of “de-risking” as a result of anti-money laundering (AML) risk in financial services is gaining increasing prominence. On the one hand, increased regulatory scrutiny in the area of AML has led some financial institutions to seek to minimize their exposure to risk, and therefore to avoid doing business with clients in higher-risk areas. On the other hand, businesses in new and emerging industries (such as cryptocurrency or cannabis) can find gaining access to the traditional banking system to be a significant challenge. Please join us as we discuss challenges and potential solutions to the complex issue of AML de-risking in financial services.

  • Jeff Francis, Assistant General Counsel, Royal Bank of Canada
  • Kim Manchester, Managing Director, ManchesterCF
  • Nathan Montgomery, General Counsel, DC Bank
  • Amber Scott, Founder & Chief AML Ninja, Outlier Solutions Inc.
