Virtual Master Class – Anti-money laundering and sanctions

November 10, 2020

Anti-money laundering and economic sanctions have been in the spotlight from a range of perspectives, including political, economic, tax and legal. In this Master Class, Birgit Snijder – Kuipers, Marlies Heemskerk – de Waard, Angelique Groen – Boon and Christian Godlieb will cover important recent developments that may be relevant to professionals working in Legal and Compliance teams at financial institutions.


They will discuss the implementation of the central register for ultimate beneficial owners of legal entities. They will also address the implementation of the Fifth Anti-Money Laundering Directive and, in particular, explore the Dutch Central Bank registration requirement for providers engaged in exchange services between virtual and fiat currencies and for custodian wallet providers. As regards economic sanctions, they will discuss the administrative organisation and internal control requirements that financial institutions have to comply with, and the risks related to US sanctions and the EU Blocking Statute. The Master Class also covers the current regulatory and criminal enforcement climate relating to both anti-money laundering and economic sanctions compliance by financial institutions. They will look at the roles and positions taken by the Central Bank, the Authority for the Financial Markets and the Public Prosecution Service in the Netherlands.
