AML regulation and GDPR are seen as two compliance headaches which often clash with one another and which makes it difficult for operators know whether a certain act geared towards AML compliance may actually be in breach of GDPR. It is thus very important for operators to be well aware of the proper requirements of under AML, aswell as the limitations imposed under GDPR to balance both obligations. This seminar shall go through some of the challenges and clashes between the two legal regimes and seek to reconcile these as much as possible while also looking at some recent judgements on the subject.
