About the AML SUMMIT

Since 2015, AML SUMMIT has welcomed more than 3,200 attendees.

The annual AML SUMMIT conference was established in 2015 by AML Solutions to bring together AML professionals while educating them in all things AML.

Attendees will have the opportunity to connect with key industry players as well as peers from all over the country tasked with carrying out the same AML obligations.

The presenters and workshop facilitators are all expert AML/CFT practitioners and represent involvement from the NZ AML/CFT Supervisors, NZ Police, Ministry of Justice, and local AML/CFT industry experts.
