In the current work climate, where talent is scarce, how to attract and retain talent has become top of mind for any organisation. Yet at times we may forget 'the organisation' is represented by every employee - and even more crucially by the senior leaders who play a pivotal role in creating an environment potential employees want to join, and current employees want to grow and stay in. This workshop explores the leader's role in attracting and engaging (young) talent by reflecting on practical ways which make sense for each individual organisation and their 'employer' brand.
Accountants and finance professionals, particularly those in managerial/directorship/decision-making roles.
This session will expand upon the interpretation of beneficial ownership regulations both in terms of statutory disclosure submissions to be made in terms of applicable corporate regulation, as well as in the context of the application of due diligence vis-à-vis a subject person’s AML/CFT obligations.
The application of beneficial ownership regulation to complex ownership structures, including scenarios that do not give rise to a predetermined outcome and which need to be assessed and analysed in the context of their factual context and commercial circumstances. Reference will specifically be made to case studies concerning complex ownership structures including trusts, foundations, and associations, and the session will focus on identifying the specific elements and circumstances which can make corporate complexity a material risk factor.
Adherence with beneficial ownership regulation is a key component of any subject person’s regulatory compliance and has been identified within the scope of the FIAU’s AML/CFT Supervisory Plan for 2024 vis-à-vis targeted examinations for auditors, accountants, and CSPs. Now that most subject persons are broadly familiar with their regulatory obligations in respect of beneficial ownership, this session will be intended to address the more complex scenarios which still remain problematic for otherwise mature practitioners.
Accountants, auditors, lawyers, directors, CSPs, and other persons finding themselves within scope of, or in interaction with, local AML/CFT regulation.
