Fireside Chat: Unknown Risks in M&A
AML Screening and Due Diligence in Corporate Finance
Date: Thursday, August 13, 2020 | 10am PST – 1pm EST – 7pm CET
How can firms manage unknown risks as compliance regulations evolve and financial crimes grow more sophisticated?
M&A transactions inevitably pose some level of risk between buyers and sellers. More often than not, M&A transactions are time-sensitive with significant pressure from all sides.
This can often lead to corners being cut during financial crime, money laundering, and terrorist financing due diligence. However, regulatory actions, shareholder lawsuits, and criminal charges can overshadow a deal even years after it has been closed.
Financial crime units and law enforcement have increased their focus on M&A in private capital markets transactions as vehicles for money laundering and financing terrorism. This has raised the bar and heightened regulatory expectations of what is required by all parties involved in a transaction.
