UpcomingAnti-Money Laundering (AML) and Counter terrorist Financing (CTF) in Qatar and the Qatar Financial Centre (QFC) | Online training | 31 May 2021 | 9AM to 11AM (Qatar time)
Following the modus operandi of neighbouring countries facing impending evaluation by the Financial Action Task Force, Qatar has introduced widespread reform of its Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and Counter Terrorist Financing (CTF) framework over the past couple of years, including new flagship legislation in the form of a new AML/CTF Law and a new Counter-Terrorism Law in a drive to meet international standards. Reforms are targeted at implementing best practices and giving new teeth and tools to the authorities to detect, prevent, and prosecute instances of illicit financing. Join LexisNexis Middle East and Al Tamimi & Company for an online training session, which will dissect the new provisions to provide attendees with a detailed and practical understanding of the new AML/CTF legal framework, and how practitioners can uphold their obligations to protect against criminal activity.

- Mapping out Qatar’s recent AML/CTF reform.
