Chief Wine Officer, and sponsor IBM RegTech invite you to an exclusive evening of fine wine, gourmet dining and exceptional business content at the renowned Angeline’s, Charlotte, NC. Join us to learn how regulators and financial institutions are changing their views and fighting financial crime with Artificial Intelligence (AI).
If the frequency of financial crime incidents are any indication, financial institutions across the globe continue to face several systematic threats. From money laundering and KYC, to outright fraud and conduct violations, including both internal and external bad actors. However, the current web of disconnected alerting systems produces too much noise. How can financial institutions filter through this noise to provide cognitive solutions that expose underlying risks and reduce exposure to financial crimes? By leveraging AI to accelerate insight and increase efficiency.
Hear from guest speakers Jim Hilton of Promontory and James Trinkle of IBM as they explore the latest innovations in AI, automation and advanced analytics to accelerate anti-fraud, AML compliance and conduct risk management. Discover how to reduce regulatory, operational and reputational risk, whilst combining AI and automation capabilities that identify not just financial crimes but potential financial criminals.
Alongside the high-level business content, prepare to delight in a four course gourmet dining experience, accentuated by some fine- wine tasting. Ending the evening with some light entertainment provided by our Wine Expert and an opportunity to network among peers.
