Significant advancements continue to reshape anti-money laundering and counter-terrorism financing (AML/CTF) efforts in 2020. In January, the U.S. Department of the Treasury released its National Strategy for Combatting Terrorist and Other Illicit Financing which details the key priorities in Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) enforcement. The Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC) also issued an updated BSA/AML Examination Manual, while the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) discussed the Travel Rule for digital assets.

These and other developments are expected to impact the financial compliance landscape in 2021. With risks further intensified by the COVID-19 pandemic, financial institutions need a proper roadmap to ensure compliance and preparedness against a potential inquiry.

Listen as a panel of key thought leaders and distinguished professionals assembled by The Knowledge Group provides a comprehensive discussion of the recent enforcement trends in AML/CTF and their implications in 2021. Speakers will also discuss practical compliance tips and strategies in this evolving climate.

  • Recent AML/CTF Enforcement Developments
  • COVID-19 Implications

  • Best Compliance Practices
  • 2021 Outlook
