New Zealand’s leading AML Summit conference is back for the fifth time and is being held in Auckland on Thursday 30th April & Friday 1st May.

The 2020 AML Summit will be a two day event showcased at Pullman Hotel Auckland.

This is a great opportunity for all Reporting Entities to engage with AML experts and Supervisors to learn more about the AML/CFT legislation and guidance, discuss 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.

The main conference will take place on Thursday 30th April and then followed by a day of practical training addressing common issues seen by AML auditors, AML consultants and the Supervisors.
