ACFE Sydney July Event – Financial crime risks in the superannuation sector

Please RSVP before Friday 1 July 2016 (links below)

The Superannuation sector in Australia is substantial in terms of value and number of customer accounts.  It has a number of unique characteristics that make it vulnerable to money laundering, terrorist financing and other crimes such as fraud and misappropriations.  The volume of transactions, combined with a push to provide members with greater online access and features heighten the potential exposures and vulnerabilities for this vital sector.

Join First State Super’s Chief Risk Officer, Suzette Thurman and David Hawkins, Director, AUSTRAC Strategic Intelligence and Policy, as they discuss the 2016 Money Laundering and Terrorism Financing Risk Assessment of the Superannuation Funds sector and share insights and commentary.

We are sure that this seminar will be invaluable to fraud investigation, AML/CTF and forensic professionals.
