Built on a legacy that spans more than 35 years, FIBA is a non-profit trade association and international center for financial excellence. The Florida-based, and globally connected, organization’s membership includes the largest financial institutions from Europe, the United States, Latin America and the Caribbean.
The core of FIBA’s work is education; FIBA applies practical ideas and real world solutions to train and certify thousands in anti-money laundering compliance. FIBA is recognized by the financial services industry, regulators and law enforcement as a Center for Excellence for its knowledge and expertise in anti-money laundering compliance and its high-level education and training programs. FIBA’s comprehensive education programs feature the AMLCA and CPAML Compliance Certifications in partnership with Florida International University’s (FlU) College of Business Administration, where industry practitioners are kept up-to-date on relevant trends and changes. Through its association, FIBA ensures that its Leadership Academy provides the most effective compliance coursework worldwide.
Along with in-demand training programs, FIBA organizes conferences, workshops, and seminars developed specifically with industry professionals in mind. Most notably, FIBA’s world-renowned AML Compliance Conference is held annually in Miami and attended by over 1,400 AML professionals, from 52 countries and five continents. FIBA also works closely with FELABAN, the Federation of Latin American Banks, which represents over 600 financial institutions from 19 countries throughout Latin America. Together, they host the prestigious FELABAN Annual Assembly which brings nearly 2,000 participants from 51 countries across five continents to Miami every other year.
