AACOBB History

Chief AML Compliance Officers from 14 banks came together to organize the “AAMLCOBB,” an AML Officers’ association, at BFIU on November 23, 2016. The CAMLCO of The City Bank and the CAMLCO of Mutual Trust Bank, in their capacity as member secretary, organized the association. A First Elected EC Committee including certain banks was established in 2017 as an Executive Committee. The City Bank Limited’s AMD & CAMLCO was chosen as Chairman, and Mutual Trust Bank Limited’s SEVP & CAMLCO was elected as General Secretary, during the Executive Committee’s first meeting, which took place at BFIU on March 14, 2017. On November 23, 2017, the association’s name was changed to “AACOBB”, Association of Anti-Money Laundering Compliance Officers of Banks in Bangladesh. The Executive Committee legally formed themselves as an association in 2023 by starting the registration procedure under section 28 of the Companies Act, 1994.


Founded in November 2016 as a discussion forum, the association’s mission is to be the voice of money laundering prevention officers and the wider financial crime prevention community across the banking sector, championing their concerns and providing a platform for dialogue, support, and continuous professional development.


To be an organization that is truly a force to be reckoned with when it comes to combating money laundering and ensuring the integrity of the banking industry. By bringing together top experts and professionals from various banks, this association creates a platform for sharing knowledge, best practices, and strategies to effectively combat money laundering.
