On October 26-29, Money20/20 is hosting their first-ever MoneyFest, a virtual event that highlights what would’ve been brought in their live shows in 2020 if it wasn’t for Covid. MoneyFest will be free and available to the entire money ecosystem, both stream-lived and on demand. 

The MoneyFest virtual event includes 100+ industry speakers, 20 keynotes, 15 deep-dive panel discussions, and live Q&As. The agenda is packed full of incredible industry experts discussing what’s next for the money ecosystem. Last week, we mentioned five sessions that we can’t wait to attend. Here are a few more you won’t want to miss!

Stemming The Loss of Billions: Synthetic Identities and the Next Frontier in KYC

Carole House, Financial Crimes Enforcement Network, Naftali Harris, SentiLink, Jim Cunha, Federal Reserve Bank of Boston, Sarah Hoisington, SentiLink, 10/29 1:30PM-1:50PM

Synthetic fraud is a hot-button issue. According to McKinsey, synthetic identity fraud is the fastest-growing financial crime in the US, and cost lenders $6bn in 2016 according to a 2019 Federal Reserve white paper. While the financial losses are significant, synthetic identities can also be used to evade identity controls with impunity, facilitating money laundering, drug and human trafficking and terror financing. If not targeted correctly, synthetic identity fraud can negatively impact minors, immigrants and other new-to-credit applicants. Will financial institutions take action to prevent this issue, or is it up to regulators to force their hand? This panel of regulators, risk experts, and entrepreneurs will discuss whether KYC processes need to be expanded to address this increasing threat.
