The Knowledge Series by TCAE – Wildlife Trafficking

November 7th 2020 at 10:00AM to 11:00AM EDT

TCAE is excited to invite Kim Manchester, Managing Director of ManchesterCF for a discussion on the black market and illegal trading activity surrounding wildlife trafficking.  Proceeds of wildlife trafficking are, in many ways, similar to other forms of illegal proceeds: a launderer has to detach the funds from its source, store and transport the funds in a safe manner and make them available for the benefactor(s). Financial institutes are key stakeholders in monitoring and capturing potential trafficking cases and can play important roles in the investigation and termination of such criminal activity. Join us for an in-depth conversation about the trafficking methods and possible transactional red flags.
