Swiss-UK Dialogue: Promoting a Coordinated Response to De-Risking

29 October 2018, 13:30
RUSI Whitehall
Invite Only
Co-organised with the Embassy of Switzerland in the UK, this event will bring together representatives from government, the financial sector, charities, tech companies and other key stakeholders to take stock of measures taken so far in response to de-risking and promote a coordinated way forward.

Given that the nature and impact of ‘de-risking’ are generally well-recognised, this event will focus on solutions. This includes a review of the implementation and effectiveness of existing measures, such as guidance issued by international standard-setters, licensing regimes for non-profit organisations and capacity-building. Participants will also identify any additional initiatives, in particular based on new technologies, that may complement existing efforts.

Speakers include:

  • Ambassador Alexandre Fasel, Ambassador of Switzerland to the UK
  • Ben Joakim, Founder & CEO, Disberse
  • Ambassador Alexander Karrer, Deputy State Secretary for International Finance, Swiss Federal Department of Finance; Chair, Correspondent Banking Coordination Group, Financial Stability Board
  • Tracy Paradise, Head of AML Strategy and Architecture, HSBC
  • Rachel Turner, Director, Department for International Development
  • Lia van Broekhoven, Executive Director, Human Security Collective.

For any inquiries, please contact Olivier Kraft.
