Money laundering and terrorist financing (“ML/TF”) can present
significant compliance, reputational and operational risks for corporations and
have an economic impact on most businesses. Regulators have been taking
positive steps to combat ML/TF as well as identify deficiencies in the
anti-money laundering (AML) and counter-terrorist financing (CTF) systems and
controls of the corporations.
TMA is delighted to have invited Ms. Annie Chan, Managing Director of
Mazars Corporate Recovery & Forensic Services Limited, to share with TMA Members the latest update on AML. This seminar will give an overview and the key concepts of money

Customer Due Diligence (“CDD”), record keeping and recognition and reporting of
suspicious transactions. It also presents AML/CTF legislation and regulations
in Hong Kong, the Securities and Futures Commission Guideline on AML/CTF, as
well as the latest updates.
