The FRA team in Dubai hosted an exceptional event last week at the GRC Today Summit. From Crypto to Sanctions, a fantastic array of speakers and insights. Thanks to the 35+ speakers, amazing 350+ audience and The Wealth Today. Here are some of our key takeaways:

Managing Special situations and Corporate failures – Bhavin Shah moderated a fantastic panel with Simeon Kerr, Nicholas McDonagh, Arun Reddy & Ali Al Zarouni discussing the importance of early action when facing special situations. To manage effectively – identify each stakeholder’s objectives and concerns, bring in the right advisers at an early stage, and be authentic in words and action.

Regulatory Compliance: Bringing Crypto Mainstream – fascinating discussion from Peter Smith, Alina Parfilava, Dan Roberts, Brian Byagaba & Meera Judge – moderated by May Mhanna on how crypto firms are working closely with regulators to develop fair frameworks. Protecting consumers, investors etc whilst supporting innovation will help bring crypto into the mainstream

Russia Sanctions Business: Due Diligence, Complexities and Unpredictability – a wide range of experiences and insights shared by Mohamed Daoud, Sumit Sarkar, William G. Rich & Christopher Flinos on the panel moderated by Stephen Millington. What everyone agreed on was that the future for Sanctions is unpredictable and adaptability will be key.

Regulatory Compliance and Enforcement – panel moderated by Temi Labor discussed the need for advanced tools to combat financial crime. As the nature of crime evolves, technology and solutions will need to be smarter and adapt quickly to combat financial crime. We also heard from regulators about initiatives and efforts being implemented locally to combat financial crime. Tim Land, Safeya AlSafi, Dr. Yoonus C. Ahammed, Elias Kokaly & Ryan Terribilini.
