Wolters Kluwer Financial Services and First Advantage Hold China Regulatory Update Conference

Experts to Address Burden of Regulatory Change, Provide Tips for Successful AML Regulatory Compliance, Including “Know Your Customer” and “Know Your Employee” Controls

Wolters Kluwer Financial Services today opens its second annual China Regulatory Update Conference, with key support from First Advantage. The event, which is being held at the Grand Hyatt in Shanghai, will provide a comprehensive summary of regulatory changes and trends taking place in the financial services industry across China and offer expertise on how financial institutions can adapt to the increasing burden of regulatory change.

The annual event brings together regulatory, risk, finance and compliance specialists from across the Asia-Pacific region to look at industry trends and future developments with presentations and interactive sessions. The event provides opportunities for attendees to network and discuss common pain-points and industry issues with peers.

“As we have seen around the globe, the reputational as well as financial costs of regulatory infractions or sanction breaches have severe impacts on banks,” said Michael Thomas, director, North Asia at Wolters Kluwer Financial Services. “The presentations at the conference will address how banks operating in China can maintain the compliance controls critical to their ability to protect their reputation and grow safely.”

“We are excited to work with Wolters Kluwer Financial Services in answering a need to bring together experts to discuss important developments in the industry,” said First Advantage Chief Executive Officer and President Mark Parise. “The conference will help attendees discover core ways to both stay compliant and protect their key assets, while answering compulsory requirements applicable to all foreign banks operating in China.”

As financial markets open up with China’s focus on “comprehensively deepening reform,” there is an ever-greater emphasis on proper oversight to ensure regulatory compliance. Banks operating in China face significant challenges in managing regulatory compliance as they also implement reform and seek to support financial innovation. 

Presentations include:

  • Are You Hiring People You Can Trust?
  • Regulatory Landscape in China
  • FATCA and Its Localization
  • Developments in Anti-Money Laundering in China
