Financial Crime is an ever-increasing blight on social cohesion and financial stability globally. Mitigating it is a challenge for all participants: law enforcement agencies, financial institutions, governments, and regulators globally; it is too big for any single participant to take on, everyone has a role to play.
As gatekeepers, financial institutions have a key role in blocking criminal access to the financial system. However, the pace of criminal ingenuity, primarily led by technological advances, places an ever-increasing burden on them to evolve at pace to keep up.

When we hear “GDPR” we usually think of our social media privacy (need to check the settings), but what about our financial data privacy with our accounts at banking and other financial business partners?
While much of the public appears to understand their rights under the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) with regards to their social media presence (partly due to scandals in the past) there is more bubbling under the surface with regards to individual rights under GDPR and their relationship with the financial services industry. There is a global regulatory trend towards transparency obligations of the financial services industry to counter tax evasion and money laundering. However, GDPR and the increased public demand for privacy goes opposite to this trend. This paper sets out to explore where the individual rights under GDPR may at times conflict with the regulatory requirements imposed on the financial services industry.
