The trend for Anti-Money Laundering (AML) due diligence and compliance is intensifying over the years as regulators continue to focus on enforcement actions against AML violators. For the past months, U.S. regulators have brought more than 40 enforcement cases with a total of more than $1-billion imposed penalties. Top issues zeroed in on include internal controls and identification and reporting of suspicious activities.
Since enforcement in this area will be a regulatory focus this year, financial institutions should expect an increased scrutiny. This trend implies the need for financial institutions to consider establishing and assessing the effectiveness of their AML programs.
In this live webcast, a panel of distinguished professionals and thought leaders assembled by The Knowledge Group will help financial institutions and their counsel understand the important aspects of this significant topic. They will provide an in-depth discussion of the recent developments and noteworthy issues in the AML landscape. Speakers will also offer best practices in developing and implementing an effective AML due diligence and compliance program.
