While the mobile channel is already yielding tremendous success, the global pandemic has given mobile banking a new spotlight and delaying the inevitable is no longer an option.

Fortunately, FIs can take simple steps to reduce the risk of fraud, account takeover and other types of attacks to better protect both their customers and themselves.

    Key Discussion Points

    • How FIs of all sizes can leverage mobile to improve productivity, especially as contactless banking becomes the norm

    Is BNPL a Force for Good or EvilBuy Now Pay Later (BNPL) is arguably one of the hottest trends to arrive in the South East Asian market and it's easy to see the appeal. For merchants, it is an easy way to increase conversion and for consumers, it grants them the instant gratification of being able to purchase something immediately by making several interest-free installments.

    However, detractors have come out en masse to describe BNPL as a worrying trend that promotes unhealthy consumerism. The rising popularity has also caught the attention of regulators as well, with MAS issuing a public statement that they will be “reviewing the appropriate regulatory approach".

    In this webinar, we discuss whether BNPL is a force for good or evil.

    • Are concerns about BNPL exaggerated or warranted?
    • Should BNPL be regulated
    • How will BNPL evolve

    Innovate Your KYC to Combat Identity Crimes in the Financial Industry and Beyond

    Covid-19 has undeniably disrupted global economic activities and provided many new opportunities for fraudsters to exploit loopholes in the financial system. As the Philippines market saw a shift to digital banking following the onset of Covid-19, there has been a significant rise in scams and fraud cases. From 2019 to 2021, Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) reported 2 billion pesos lost by consumers to fraudulent financial transactions. As this worrying trend keeps up, authorities are ramping up the fight against fraud.

    With new guidelines implemented to Designated Non-Financial Business and Professions (DNFBPs), and the introduction of the Financial Consumer Protection Act, it is now high time for businesses and financial institutions to re-imagine your financial crime management to better protect yourself and your customers.

    Decrypting AML Compliance for Cryptocurrencies and VASPsAccording to the IMF, the total market value of crypto assets surpassed $2 trillion in September 2021 – a 10-fold increase since early 2020. As the Virtual Asset Service Providers (VASPs) market matures and expands to all corners of the globe, new opportunities and risks emerge for investors, businesses and entrepreneurs.
    In order to manage the new risks, mitigate potential implications on the wider economy, and maintain accessible resilient and safe crypto markets, the regulatory landscape for cryptocurrencies is constantly evolving. In particular, there is an increased focus on financial crime regulation to ensure that cryptocurrencies and markets are not used for illicit purposes, including money laundering and terrorist financing. But with different regulatory approaches in different jurisdictions, and the cross-border nature of cryptocurrencies, it can be challenging to understand your obligations and set up the right compliance program.
    In this webinar, we will explore the regulatory landscape and share best practice AML compliance tips from our experience working with cryptocurrency exchanges.
    Join the session to discover: 
    • The latest emerging cryptocurrency regulations and implications for financial crime compliance
    • Challenges around customer onboarding and due diligence
    • Best practices for implementing efficient, automated and scalable screening solutions
