AML/BSA compliance is always near or at the top of any compliance professional’s list of topics to monitor. The Anti-Money Laundering Act of 2020 made several substantial changes to the BSA statute, and it’s now up to FinCEN and the prudential regulators to put them into practice by amending the regulation and exam procedures. Most critical is a change to the beneficial owner rules that took effect in 2018; eventually (key word there) these requirements will be shifted onto businesses to be maintained in a government database. We seen the first few new regulations from FinCEN to put these requirements into effect. How should financial institutions deal with that now though? As well, we’ll see changes in SAR procedures and the inclusion of federal AML priorities into individual institutions’ BSA policies. There is a lot going on – in this webinar, we’ll cover the new requirements, talk about what’s coming and when, and provide recommendations on how to deal with critical BSA/AML issues right now.
