Gain a better understanding of AML laws, regulations, and enforcement in the United States.

All persons that interact with the U.S. financial system are impacted by U.S. laws enacted to fight money laundering and terrorist financing. The regulation and enforcement of anti-money laundering law evolves quickly, in response to the continuous efforts of illicit actors to find new ways to launder ill-gotten gains. Over the past year, change in this area has accelerated, and this acceleration will continue to evolve in 2024 in ways that impact not only financial institutions covered by AML regulations but also a broad swath of U.S. companies and non-U.S. companies conducting business in the United States. The program will provide attendees a basic understanding of AML laws, regulations, and enforcement in the United States, an outlook of changes on the horizon, and an understanding of how it impacts their business and clients.
