4th Anti-Money Laundering Summit - Fintelekt
The 4th Annual Summit on Anti-Money Laundering 2019 organized by National Banking Institute (NBI) in association with and KYC Nepal as Title Sponsor was held on 1st February 2019 at Hotel Radisson, Kathmandu. The event was inaugurated by several dignitaries from the banking industry including Mr. Sanjib Subba (CEO, NBI), Dr. Chiranjibi Nepal (Governor, NRB), Mr. Jeevan Prakash (Director General, Department of Money Laundering Investigation) and others.
Our CEO Mrs. Shivani Shrestha, shared KYC Nepal’s story about our efforts towards Nepal’s fight against financial crime. She spoke about our collective attempt to build a database with over 40,000 PEP data enabling us to be the provider of the most cost-effective and comprehensive local PEP database.
To help the audience get a live browsing experience through the database, we also set up a PEP search booth where a large audience was involved in typing out the names of popular politicians and instantly receiving a list of all their publicly available information. The event gave us a wonderful opportunity to interact with the executives and distinguished personalities from the industry and expand our network which in fact was our motive behind sponsoring the event.
Our team was available at the booth to assist the audience to understand and know more about our products and services and to answer any questions that they had. We also presented every participant with a bag full of merchandise such as brochures, t-shirt etc.
The event was full of enriching experiences right from fruitful interactions with the industry representatives to insightful discussions and talks on AML in Nepal. With the ongoing buzz around the significance of AML regulations in Nepal, it is important that such events are organized more often, giving every individual/organization an opportunity to add to their contribution towards the fight against money laundering and financial crimes.
