AMMAN —  Arab Bank has recently hosted the MENA Financial Crime Compliance Group (MENA FCCG) two-day event in Amman; seeking to further empower the combating financial crime community in Jordan and beyond, according to a statement of the Arab Bank. 

The MENA FCCG is an industry-driven, voluntary initiative, currently consisting of 13 proactive financial institutions from nine MENA countries, among which is the Arab Bank. 

Chaired by Wissam Fattouh, the initiative, seeks to bring collective action in the fight against money laundering and terrorism finance in the region. 

“MENA FCCG will continue to capitalise on its members’ collective capacity and to weave strong relationships with public and private partners, building on its record in the fight against financial crime in the MENA region.” Fattouh, who is also secretary general of the union of Arab Banks (UAB), with both UAB and Refinitiv acting as strategic partners to the group, said on the occasion.

The plenary meeting acted as a platform for participants to discuss priorities for 2019-2020 and the means to steer collective efforts towards areas in need for greater intervention, according to the statement.
