Malta - Building Resilience To The De-Risking Agenda

On 14 November 2017 FINTRAIL in collaboration with the the Central Bank of Malta will be delivering a workshop to invited guests from 25 Maltese banks focused on "Building Resilience To The De-Risking Agenda".

In recent years, there has been a gradual decline of intra-bank relationships with many economies throughout the world experiencing a decline in correspondent-banking services. The de-risking agenda of banks providing correspondent banking services is of concern. Surveys, reports and studies from the World Bank, the IMF, the Financial Stability Board and other various research organisations indicate that this is a problem affecting a number of countries and numerous banks.

While there is much public debate about the strategic implications of and solutions to de-risking, there has been little in the way of advice at the practitioner level as to how bankers across the first and second line of defence can respond to this threat.

Leveraging FINTRAIL's unique expertise in correspondent banking and financial crime compliance, this interactive workshop provides key individuals with the knowledge and confidence required to confront the issue of de-risking, establish a robust risk-based approach to financial crime compliance and build trust across key stakeholders including regulators, foreign correspondents and customers.
