Anti-Money Laundering:a new Action Plan for Ireland and Europe


On Thursday 25th February I hosted an event entitled 'Anti-Money Laundering: a new Action Plan for Ireland and Europe'. Against the background of several major money laundering scandals, I chaired this event organised in conjunction with EPLO Ireland


The panel, speaking to over 550 virtual participants consisted of:

  • Sean Berrigan - European Commission, Director-General of DG Financial Stability, Financial Services and Capital Markets Union

  • Billy Kelleher MEP for Ireland South, Member of the Economic and Monetary Affairs Committee

  • Derville Rowland - Director General Financial Conduct, Central Bank of Ireland

  • John O'Driscoll - Assistant Commissioner Organised & Serious Crime, An Garda Síochána

  • Colin Moreland - Head of Treasury and Trade Solutions for Europe at Citibank

This panel looked at how different policies across various EU Member States could be streamlined along with the development of a single EU supervisor, and how this supervisor should operate. The panel also discussed how Ireland fares on anti-money laundering rules and what it needs to improve.
