The 6th Nordic Fintech Research Symposium will focus on how academia, fintechs, larger financial institutions and authorities can collaborate on fighting financial fraud with a special focus on Anti Money Laundering (AML) by applying knowledge from state-of-the-art research and advanced industry solutions.

For the 2024 Symposium Copenhagen Fintech has worked with The Department of Computer Science at The University of Copenhagen to bring you a full day program delivered by world renowned researchers and industry experts. We promise that the symposium will be a valuable platform for knowledge exchange, networking, and collaboration.


Key research themes will be application of advanced technology to address technical challenges such as:

Managing the sheer volume and velocity of transactions
Securing data quality and integration
Balancing data privacy, anonymity issues and regulatory compliance
Reducing false positives
Managing and replacing legacy systems to fight AML
Handling cyber security risks
We will also adress measures to fight AML from a soceital and ethical perspectives and how we through partnerships can improve AML systems in banks to make them cheaper, faster and better and what measures are needed on a more systemic level to get there.
