From March 12 to 14, 2018, Diaz, Reus & Targ, LLP (“DRT”) sponsored the Annual Florida International Bankers Association AML (Anti-Money Laundering) Compliance Conference. This year, the Conference attracted over 1,500 attendees, including compliance officers, heads of business units, CEOs, VPs, BSA analysts, auditors, lawyers, and consultants, from 42 countries and 330 institutions.

During the event, DRT´s attorneys engaged in an open dialogue with the attendees regarding their experiences and perspectives involving DRT’s practice areas in OFAC, White-Collar, Government Compliance, State Department, and Criminal Investigations. Notably, founding Partner Robert I.  Targ served as a speaker at the Conference’s panel on NTR Metals: A case Study in Trade Based Money Laundering (TBML) and presented his remarks on the hot trends of TBML and on a very recent criminal investigation and prosecution of TBML in connection with illegally mined gold originating in, and shipped from, South America to the United States.

Michael Diaz, Jr., Global Managing Partner, comments that “it was a pleasure to sponsor and attend FIBA’s AML Compliance Conference. This is one the most important conferences in the world for the financial industry, since industry leaders, regulators, and supervisors meet to discuss and debate insights on regulatory expectations and best practices. Being regulatory compliance one of DRT´s stellar areas of practice, we had to be there. We are definitively looking forward to the next edition of this event.”
