The Economic Crime Forum is delighted to welcome Mr Calvin E. J. Wilson to speak at the following event:

The FATF's Lists from the Perspective of Listed Jurisdictions

on 30 March, 2023.

Mr Calvin E. J. Wilson was the Secretary-General of the Caribbean Financial Action Task Force during the period of maximum pressure on Caribbean Offshore Financial Centres by the Financial Action Task Force.

Calvin Wilson is a veteran of the financial crime risk and control arena with unrivalled credentials: he is the Immediate Past Executive Director of the Caribbean FATF, working, during the terms of four FATF Executive Secretaries, and at sixty one FATF Plenary and Working Group meetings. He is an astute observer of global politics, economics and finance, who fully understands and has extensive knowledge and experience in the strategic AML/CFT imperatives of the FATF, EU, and other organisations, which allow discernment of trends in the global agenda and facilitates the provision of cogent, effective and confidential strategic and crisis management advice at the highest political and private sector levels internationally.

Nigel Morris-Cotterill, a pioneer in financial crime risk and compliance strategies and Chairman of The Economic Crime Forum said "For almost two decades, Mr Wilson stood as a defender of independence and sovereignty for small jurisdictions, especially those in the Caribbean whilst always aiming to ensure that those jurisdictions worked within a framework that was within the spirit of the FATF's 40 Recommendations without causing immeasurable harm to those that live and work in small jurisdictions. "

The Forum will look at

-What happens to the general economy and to businesses when a jurisdiction is placed on the list?

- How do a jurisdiction's relationships with its near neighbours fare?

What is the effect on public companies when their jurisdiction is listed ?

What is the effect on a country's financial intelligence unit and those that report to it and how what does a central bank do when a jurisdiction is listed with a view to getting off the list as soon as possible?

The Forum will be online on 30 March, 2023 and costs just GBP30 per delegate.
