The FFE NL is a local network connecting the Dutch fintechs to enable sharing of information and typologies, to help strengthen the sector’s ability to detect and counter the global threat of financial crime. The launch of the FFE NL also marks the FFE’s first step toward global expansion and the development of an international, interconnected network for financial crime information sharing.
The initiative leverages on the success of the FinTech FinCrime Exchange (FFE) UK and builds on its best practices, while also connecting local actors. The FFE UK is a member organisation of over 45 of the UK’s leading FinTechs, who share information and financial crime typologies and controls. The FFE network produces white papers to exchange best practice on financial crime risk and compliance mechanisms, and share experiences and inform relevant stakeholders in law enforcement, government and regulatory bodies.
The global scope of financial crime and the shared threats faced by all major FinTech hubs particularly underscore the need for the FFE NL, which will give its members not only a trusted place to exchange information, but also access to an increasingly far-reaching network of resources and perspectives.
The first FFE NL meeting will be held on 30 May in Amsterdam, designed to align with the ACAMS 14th Annual AML & Financial Crime Conference Europe.
The FFE network is currently free for members. For more information on FFE NL or to register interest in membership, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The FFE was founded in January 2017 by FINTRAIL, a financial crime risk management consultancy, and the Centre for Financial Crime and Security Studies at the Royal United Services Institute (RUSI).
