In the conference proper, Morris-Cotterill will present a high-level paper entitled " How to develop effective strategies to counter money laundering" aimed at directors and other senior officers in financial institutions and moderate a round-table discussion on the subject "Financial Crime Risk Management : a unified approach" which will look at how different risk management and commercial areas interlock, providing much common information which can be stored once and analysed in many different ways so as to reduce costs and to improve efficiency. He will be joined by Charles Ringera, Head, Operational Risk and Compliance, Kenya Commercial Bank and James Ondeyo, Regional Head, Business Intelligence, Standard Chartered Bank.
In addition, Morris-Cotterill will present, for the first time in Kenya, "Counter-Money Laundering Strategies," a two day course that covers the essential elements of compliance and risk management. Starting at Foundation level ("What is money? What is money laundering?") the course quickly moves onto Intermediate level issues such as dealing with high-risk customers and issues related to sanctions, for example recent actions against Iranian oil companies and banks. The course is a mix of seminar and workshop.
