Diaz Reus Partner, Robert I. Targ, to address latest developments in trade based money laundering at the 15th FIBA Annual Anti-Money Laundering Compliance Conference in Miami, March 4-5, 2015 at the Hyatt Regency Miami.
In September 2014, when Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) announced it had uncovered the laundering of massive amounts of narcotics proceeds through Los Angeles’ garment industry, Financial Crimes Enforcement Network, FinCEN, responded by issuing a Geographic Targeting Order (GTO), imposing additional recordkeeping and reporting obligations on businesses. As these government investigative law enforcement techniques expand, a similar GTO could be targeted at South Florida or your community. Also, false documents expose participants in international trade to additional fraud and money laundering risks.
The 15th FIBA Anti-Money Laundering Compliance Conference will facilitate such knowledge exchange through sessions, targeted panel discussions, and current case studies combined with the insightful perspectives of invited experts.
Join Bob Targ, Diaz Reus Founding Partner and successful litigator in cases of financial fraud and anti-money laundering, and fellow panelists Claude Arnold, the head of HSI-Los Angeles; Daniel Stitt, a special agent from the Office of the Inspector General at the Export-Import Bank of the United States; Clark Abrams, Chief of the Money Laundering and Financial Investigations Unit at the Office of the Special Narcotics Prosecutor for the City of New York; and Walter J. Mix III, Managing Director and head of the financial services practice at Berkeley Research Group, California, as they address the “Latest Developments in Trade Based Money Laundering: Geographic Targeting Orders (GTOs), and the Intersection of Fraud and Money Laundering” on Thursday, March 5, 2015 @ 3:15 pm.
The conference will host over 1,400 AML professionals from over 50 countries in Miami, for a one-of-a- kind, world-class confluence of innovation and learning. Attendees will leave with the increased agility that comes from harvesting ideas from the most global, diverse and connected network in the industry.
In FIBA’s well-developed tradition, the leading practitioners, solution providers and other industry specialists will convene once again at the annual conference and bring the industry players together to learn from each other, network and share best practices.
Diaz Reus is pleased to be a continuing sponsor of the FIBA Anti Money Laundering Compliance conferences.
