The Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) poses an unprecedented operational and strategic challenge to the global financial sector. Banks, fund managers, insurance companies and other affected firms have been grappling with the complex and far-reaching regulations amid a climate of uncertainty over what will finally be required.

- Learn from the experience of those with direct experience of implementing FATCA projects
- Trouble-shoot your FATCA problems: benefit from sharing knowledge and experience among peers
