As part of the ongoing collaboration between the Malta Gaming Authority (MGA) and the Financial Intelligence Analysis Unit (FIAU), joint training sessions continue to be held between the two entities.

This week, a number of sessions are being hosted by MGA officials with the scope of sharing sector-specific knowledge while engaging in practical workshops which promote a general understanding of the sector at large. These workshops also serve to further discuss AML implications on the gaming verticals the MGA regulates.

Antonio Zerafa, Head – Financial Crime Compliance commented: “Collaboration is crucial when it comes to financial crime compliance. I am pleased with the level of collaboration that exists between the MGA and FIAU, which goes well beyond the daily concerted efforts and which also includes proactive endeavours such as the workshops organised this week. This allows for a very efficient way of engagement, sharing knowledge, and obtaining more information about a specific subject matter.”
