The current financial legislation developments along with the evolving regulatory landscape have forced financial institutions to be one step ahead of the unique challenges that have emerged. Moreover, significant disruptions in the financial system stemming from the Anti-Money Laundering Act (AMLA) of 2020 have led to stricter enforcements and other important reforms.
