The Association of Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialists (ACAMS) announced the launch of the Barbados ACAMS Chapter recently, which will serve as an AML hub in the Caribbean, with a presence to support anti-financial crime professionals in that country and the region. The Barbados Chapter is the sixty-fourth ACAMS Chapter worldwide.
“AML professionals face constant change and ACAMS chapters play a valuable role in proactively addressing shifts in compliance and the risk environment through education and proactive initiatives,” said Timothy McClinton, president of ACAMS. “Barbados has an experienced group of anti-financial crime professionals leading the Chapter and will undoubtedly play a large role in promoting AML initiatives and awareness in Barbados and across the Caribbean.”
The newly formed ACAMS Barbados Chapter is an extension of ACAMS, the world’s largest AML community. The ACAMS Barbados Chapter will provide a forum for subject-matter experts, international institutions and government regulators from Barbados and the Caribbean operating in the space of AML and anti-financial crime compliance.
