The FFE Conference 2018: ‘Disruptive Perspectives on Financial Crime’ 

27th November 2018. Huckletree West, 191 Wood Lane, W12 7FP, London

The FFE (Fintech Fincrime Exchange) Conference 2018: ‘Disruptive Perspectives on Financial Crime’ invites anti-financial crime professionals to explore the constantly evolving world of financial crime and to discover how FinTechs are shifting perspectives and influencing industry disruption. 

The FFE is excited to deliver an immersive experience that offers delegates the opportunity to engage with survivors of criminal activity, bringing to life the real cost of financial crime and connecting delegates to why their work matters. 

Industry experts, including CEOs from some of the world’s leading FinTechs, will share their insights and experience, providing actionable takeaways and practical solutions to empower delegates to thrive. The conference will bring together a vibrant international community of FinTechs, creating an interactive platform to encourage collaboration, discuss best practices and to share typologies. 

By broadening the perspectives of anti-financial crime professionals and offering the space for exchange, the conference provides the resources for delegates to adapt to the future needs of the industry and to continue the FFE’s mission to strengthen the sector’s ability to detect and counter the global threat of financial crime. 

The FinTech FinCrime Exchange (FFE) brings together a global network of FinTechs to collaborate on best practices in financial crime risk management.  By sharing information on criminal typologies and controls, FFE members help to strengthen the sector’s ability to detect and counter the global threat of financial crime, including money laundering, terrorist financing, bribery and corruption and tax evasion.
