The anti-money laundering (AML) due diligence and compliance landscape continue to heighten with the passing of the Anti-Money Laundering Act of 2020 (AMLA). The AMLA, which is regarded as the most crucial AML legislation to date, was designed to modernize the anti-money laundering policy in the U.S. It also aims to strengthen the current financial system, improve government coordination, and streamline AML compliance obligations.

These notable developments underscore the need for financial institutions and their counsel to take proactive steps in ensuring AML compliance. Moreover, they must keep pace with the emerging updates on anti-money laundering policy to be able to establish and bolster their due diligence programs.

In this CLE webcast, regulatory compliance experts Dennis Miralis (Nyman Gibson Miralis) and Daniel M. Polar, CAMS (LexisNexis® Risk Solutions) will examine the latest developments in anti-money laundering regulations.
