Accountants & the fight against financial crime (Part 2)
In Part 2 of our conversation with the Chair of Accountancy Europe's anti-money laundering (AML) working party, Angela Foyle, we discuss the role of accountants in the fight against financial crime. Angela discusses the public responsibility of accountants in AML, the need for a multidisciplinary supervisor to regulate the financial sector as well as the importance of ensuring cooperation continues between the EU and the accountancy profession. Angela also explains how the Covid-19 pandemic has directly impacted the fight against financial crime and how accountants can help mitigate the new risks.
