AML Summit 2020 – Virtual

30th April – 1st May 2020

New Zealand’s leading AML Summit conference is back for the fifth time and this year is being run as a Virtual conference.

This is a great opportunity for all Reporting Entities to hear from AML experts and Supervisors to learn more about the AML/CFT legislation and guidance, common issues, and hear the latest expectations for your sector. An exciting line up of speakers will also provide insightful information about the role which New Zealand plays in money laundering across the world.

Some key points about the new virtual format:


  • The AML SUMMIT will take place on-line as scheduled on 30 April and 1 May 2020.
  • It will be virtual so you can login from your living room or office.
  • It will flow like a conference; however all content will be available from 30 April and remain available on-demand throughout 2020.
  • After the conference and during 2020 new material and presentations will be added to keep you up to date including any legislative or guidance changes, or best practice suggestions.
  • We will ensure we provide practical and relevant presentations that can be shared with work colleagues or used as training material for your teams.
  • We will include information from electronic identity verification (EIV) providers as well as other AML/CFT solution providers.
