The third AML Intelligence Women in FinCrime Summit, held in celebration of International Women’s Day, will take place on March 3 and feature leaders and regulators from across the world focused on anti-money laundering efforts, according to the organization.
The online event will have two plenary sessions — one held during the workday in Europe and the other during the U.S. workday.
One of the world’s top anti-financial crime experts is joining the “Women in FinCrime” Summit: AnnaLou Tirol, deputy director at the U.S. Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN), who will deliver a keynote address, the U.S. Treasury Department confirmed last week.
Tirol previously served as associate director for FinCEN’s Strategic Operations Division, responsible for designing and implementing FinCEN’s strategic partnerships and stakeholder priorities.
Prior to joining FinCEN, she was acting chief of the Public Integrity Section of the U.S. Department of Justice, and worked with the U.S. DOJ’s Office of Overseas Prosecutorial Development, Assistance and Training as the anti-corruption resident legal advisor in Serbia and Panama specializing in anti-money laundering and countering terrorist financing.
Earlier this year, it was announced that Helen McEntee, Ireland’s minister for justice, plans to officially open the summit. Other leading speakers on the European plenary include:
- Hennie Verbeek-Kusters, chair of the Egmont Group of Financial Intelligence Units;
- Raluca Pruna; head of the Financial Crime Unit at DG-FISMA;
- Ilze Znotiņa, director of Latvia’s Financial Intelligence Unit (FIU); and
- Daniëlle Goudriaan, a European prosecutor at the European Public Prosecutor’s Office.
In addition, Moyara Ruehsen, professor of FinCrime at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey, will address attendees.
