Fintelekt Webinar on AML/CFT in Cash Economies: Informal is the New Formal

October 30, 2019

14:00 India time (08:30 London; 16:30 Hong Kong)

Global AML/CFT frameworks tend to address ‘cash economies’ as informal and exclusive of the formal/traditional banking sector. And yet, cash in circulation in Africa has risen by almost 40% across all countries, over 45% in Asia and over 75% of e-commerce transactions occur with cash payments on delivery on the continent. Continuing to treat cash-intensive economies as informal has risk-related implications but is also fuelling a booming FinTech and payments industry.

In this webinar, you can expect to hear and learn about the following topics:

  • A frank conversation about cash and related aggregate risks including de-risking;
  • Why cash not only remains king, but is also queen, prince, princess and mostly, the court jester;
  • Review case studies drawn from the Horn of Africa region and shared lessons between Africa and Asia;
  • Better understand the regulatory environment applicable to cash and the practical conditions needed for an entrepreneurial ecosystem to flourish; and
  • Discuss cash-relevant AML/CFT tools for banks, small businesses and the private sector.
