London, UNITED KINGDOM – 10 May 2012, FircoSoft, the leading global provider of watch list filtering solutions, announced today that the company will be presenting and exhibiting at the upcoming C5 Economic Sanctions Conference on the 15th-16th of May 2012, at the Le Méridien Piccadilly Hotel, London, UK.
FircoSoft sanctions compliance expert Munir Merchant will be presenting the topic ‘Implementing Enterprise Wide Automation to Comply with Sanctions Regulations’ on Wednesday the 16th of May 2012, at 4.14 PM at the Le Méridien Piccadilly Hotel, London, UK. The C5 Economic Sanctions event focuses on the latest developments in sanctions regimes as well as best practices on how to adapt compliance and screening programs to ensure they comply with all the restrictions and prohibitions in this complex Sanctions environment.
Munir has worked within the area of Counter Terrorism Financing (CTF) and Anti-Money Laundering (AML) for over 8 years. His work has been focussed on assisting banks and financial institutions in the use of technology to effectively counter the threat of dealing with sanctioned individuals/entities or Politically Exposed Persons (PEPs), processing illegal transactions, and money laundering. He has worked across multiple regulatory jurisdictions globally, and thus has an understanding of the manner in which banks and financial institutions in different countries apply technology for the purpose of achieving regulatory compliance.
“We are very pleased to be participating in the C5 Economic Sanctions Conference and Exhibition as well as having the opportunity to present during this premiere event,’’ said France Pioger, Managing Director of FircoSoft London. “The rapidly changing sanctions landscape and the increase in sanctions legislation worldwide creates new challenges for financial institutions charged with ensuring compliance with government regulations. The C5 event provides attendees with an excellent opportunity to better understand the complexities of these challenges in order to ensure compliance with US and EU sanctions regimes.”
