For nearly 30 years, Elise Bean worked as an investigator for Senator Carl Levin, including 15 years at the Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations leading inquiries into money laundering, offshore tax abuse, corruption, and corporate misconduct.

Elise has also authored a book: Financial Exposure: Carl Levin’s Senate Investigations into Finance and Tax Abuse.
George is the Director of Financial Crime Strategy for the Government of Jersey. Jersey, as a leading International Finance Centre, places its responsibility to counter financial crime at the top of the jurisdictional agenda. George works with a team of experts across the Jersey authorities and wider industry stakeholders to ensure that Jersey remains a leading jurisdiction in risk understanding, risk mitigation and continues to innovate in relation to the ongoing global fight against financial crime.
George is a lawyer by background, with over 10 years’ experience in public and private sector work, and has recently worked at the FATF (the global standard setter on AML/CFT) in the Secretariat. George acts as Head of Delegation for Jersey to MONEYVAL (the European FATF Regional body) and has significant experience engaging with other international bodies, standard setters and jurisdictions worldwide on financial crime matters.
George will be in conversation with AML expert and RiskScreen CEO, Stephen Platt, discussing Jersey’s National Risk Assessment (NRA), and the implications of such NRAs for compliance professionals globally.
Illegal wildlife trade (IWT) is estimated to be worth around $20bn per year, making it the 4th largest crime on a global level. Many criminal syndicates perceive it to be a low-risk and highly profitable model, and FATF and United for Wildlife Foundation have highlighted the convergence of IWT with narcotics, human trafficking, arms trade and counter-proliferation, and financial threats. IWT also fuels corruption, has serious environmental and biodiversity costs, as well as potentially significant impacts for public health and national economies. In particular, the recent high profile spread of zoonotic diseases (ie the coronavirus pandemic) underlines the importance of ensuring that wildlife is traded in a legal, safe and regulated manner, and that countries remove the profitability of illegal markets.
