Mark Rainsford QC to Speak at Institute of Money Laundering Prevention Officers Conference

Mark Rainsford QC will speak about the latest money laundering developments in law on Monday 16th and Tuesday 17th May 2011 at the Forest of Arden Marriot Hotel and Country Club, Meridian near Birmingham.

IMLPO was established in 2001. It is a unique, cross-representative forum of anti-money laundering (AML) professionals who share views, experiences and concerns of the day-to-day business of combating money laundering. The aims and objectives of IMLPO are to:

  • establish a recognised industry forum to address specific issues of concern identified and raised by its members
  • facilitate the further education and professional development of its members
  • provide a broad representation for issues concerning money laundering prevention

Initially, the members of IMLPO were mainly AML practitioners in financial institutions, but following the widening of the scope of the AML regulations in the UK, IMLPO took steps to broaden its membership to bring on board representatives of those business sectors newly affected: the new “gatekeepers”.

IMLPO members therefore now come not only from banks, insurance companies, fund managers, building societies, finance companies etc, but also from an increasingly wide range of other types of organisation such as accountancy firms, law firms, gaming companies, money transfer bureaux, stockbrokers and estate agents.

The conference will be chaired by the BBC's Declan Curry. Conference information and how to book can be found here:
