The upcoming 14th Annual FIBA AML Conference on February 20-21, 2014 in Miami, will convene industry leaders from both private and public sectors to debate key insights on regulatory expectations and best practices in order to ensure that transnational banks and financial institutions have at their disposal the information necessary to operate safely in the current BSA/AML/OFAC compliance environment. The program will also help foreign bankers acquire first-hand knowledge of the due diligence expectations of U.S. regulators and U.S. banks under a risk-based AML compliance program.
To facilitate an integration of global regulations and best practices for AML and compliance. This industry gathering is powered by three essential engines: long–standing institutional commitment, cooperation with the public and private sectors and a practice based content. The FIBA Annual AML Conference reflects this long-standing institutional commitment.
FIBA is well-recognized by regulators and U.S. law enforcement for its proactive approach to BSA/AML/OFAC compliance, for its high-level education and training programs in these matters as well as for its cooperation in the fight against money laundering and terrorist financing.
“As usual, the FIBA AML Conference allowed me to stay current on the latest thoughts from industry, regulators and law enforcement regarding threats and best practices regarding this critical subject”.
Ramon Usategui, Senior Vice President, Gibraltar Private Bank & Trust
“The 13th Annual FIBA AML Conference was a tremendous success. The FATCA message was delivered with pristine clarity, and the discourses on emerging AML/CFT issues were very enlightening. It was yet the industry’s richest confluence of expert knowledge, thought and ideas”.
Henry Hazel, General Manager, Eastern Caribbean Amalgamated Bank
“FIBA is always a step ahead of the game and continues to impress providing targeted guidance on new and upcoming BSA/AML challenges which is why I continue to be a devoted member and encourage anyone in this business to do the same”.
Josefina C. Taber, SVP, BSA/AML Compliance Officer, Intercredit Bank, N.A.
“As a Chief Compliance Officer in the U.S. for what is currently the largest Latin American bank in the world, I very much look forward to attending the Annual FIBA AML Compliance Conference each year. Being in the foreign banking industry for over thirty years, and having attended scores of AML Conferences over those years, I can confidently state that this is the one and only conference that brings some of the highest ranking and most knowledgeable U.S. government experts in the AML field together with the Latin American banking community to provide this most valuable resource on an annual basis to ensure these banks are kept current and up-to-speed with the latest AML regulatory developments, trends, and best practices and the ever changing demands of the AML international banking landscape.”
Richard N. Pagnotta, Senior Vice President and Chief Compliance Officer, Itaú Unibanco S.A., New York Branch

The Industry Speaks
Virtual currency is a freight train coming down the proverbial financial tracks. As a financial institution, whether a bank, credit card company, licensed remittance company, or payment processor, you are about to be faced with a choice. Get off the tracks and ignore this financial dynamo or jump on the train but become quick friends with the engineer to learn how to steer the thing and how to apply the brakes. Ben Bernanke has opined that in the long run virtual currencies will be an important player in international commerce (NYT 11/26/13 p. B 1). I think it makes sense for all financial institutions to learn everything they can about virtual currencies so they can make an educated decision whether and to what extent they might be interested in servicing this booming virtual currency economy.
