Representatives from the UK’s Non-Executive Directors Association and Cayman Islands Monetary Authority led presentations on essential risk management regulations.

International guest speaker, Louis Cooper, CEO, NEDA, shared perspectives on a Directors role, importance of a high performing board and NED’s. “Business risk arises as much from the possibility that opportunities will not be realised as it does from the possibility that threats will materialise or that errors will be made,” shared Louis.

Paul Byles, Director, FTS concluded the presentations segment by discussing the AML Board Oversight Framework: Understanding a NED’s role in a typical AML policy framework. “Regulators expect directors to set the tone at the top for AML/CFT and sanctions compliance culture to flow throughout their organizations,” he said.

The seminar provided an opportunity to engage with industry experts during the Q&A panel discussion, followed by an online test to determine attendees’ understanding of the content presented.

This seminar is one of a series delivered by FTS. “FTS hosts seminars such as this to help promote development within Cayman’s financial sectors, where industry experts provide first-hand information which is invaluable to seminar attendees,” Mr Byles added.
