The second Regulatory and Financial Crime Conference (RFCC) will take place in Dubai on Thursday 2 March 2017.
As part of the Deloitte Global Financial Crime Symposium series, Deloitte launched the inaugural RFCC in Dubai in 2016, to provide a platform for Middle East financial institutions to debate the practical and unique challenges in meeting new regulations and operating in the region.
The theme for this year’s conference in Dubai will address the disruptive forces redefining how Middle East financial institutions and regulators need to operate in the future.
“We are delighted to welcome Deloitte’s Global Financial Services Industry Leader, Bob Contri, as our keynote speaker to the conference and look forward to hearing his take on the future of financial services and digital disruption,” said Wayne Thomas, Managing Partner, Financial Advisory, Deloitte, Middle East.
The RFCC programme brings together practicing regulators from the region, senior executives from the financial services industry and leading lawyers. They will share valuable industry insight and practical knowledge, through a series of presentations and panel discussions on key topics including the future of financial services, innovation in fighting financial crime, the role of regulators in disruptive times and the “Financial Action Task Force on Money Laundering (FATF) (FATF) requirements preparedness.
“With the growing international regulatory and enforcement agenda, focus remains on how to implement change in a way that makes the institution safer while working practically,” said Bhavin Shah, Partner, Financial Advisory, Deloitte, Middle East. “The aim of RFCC is to help the financial services industry respond to the increasingly complex regulatory landscape.”
