At the conference, Mr. Pacheco will be speaking on a panel titled, “Applying Strong Measures to Avoid Economic Sanctions.” This panel will focus on how firms can:
• Deploy extensive measures of due diligence to prevent doing business with blacklisted persons or institutions
• Keep work teams trained to prevent control errors that could lead to sanctions violations
• Learn from recent sanctions cases to avoid control failures

Organized by ACAMS (Association of Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialists) the gathering provides the opportunity for financial institutions and regulatory bodies to come together to discuss the latest trends in financial crime, and how firms can implement best practices to avoid errors and violations.

“All areas of financial crime including sanctions violations, money laundering and financial terrorism continue to be an issue for financial institutions and regulatory bodies worldwide,” comments Gilberto Pacheco, Latin America Business Executive at FircoSoft (Brazil). “It’s of utmost importance for financial firms to have the proper practices and solutions in place to be able to combat prohibited financial activity, while remaining compliant with regulatory changes. I look forward to meeting with my industry peers and addressing these issues at the 9th Annual Latin American AML and Financial Crime Conference.”
