Event Synopsis:

In August 2014, the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) of the U.S. Treasury published a proposed Anti-money Laundering (AML) rule that would require financial institutions, subject to Customer Identification Procedures (CIP), to identify beneficial owners of legal entity customers and subject them to customer due diligence. This includes banks, securities brokers and dealers, mutual funds, futures commission merchants, and others. This CLE course offers participants an overview of the latest trends and best practices with respect to FinCEN’s new rule on Anti-Money Laundering and other developments in BSA/AML enforcement. A panel of thought leaders and practitioners assembled by The Knowledge Group will help firms better understand how to advise clients about application of the new rules in their businesses.
