Why Should You Attend:

This webinar program will discuss the key concepts and the current changes in the marketplace and provide practical approach to implement the regulation for legal entities and consumers. The rule applies only to accounts open on or after the May 11, 2018 compliance date; the rule will not apply retroactively. The rule applies to all accounts, including checking accounts, savings accounts, certificates of deposit, and loans. FinCEN believes that there are four core elements of customer due diligence (CDD) in order to ensure clarity and consistency across sectors:

  • Customer Identification and Verification
  • Beneficial Ownership Identification and Verification
  • Understanding the nature and purpose of customer relationships to develop a customer risk profile
  • Ongoing monitoring for reporting suspicious transactions and, on a risk-basis, maintaining and updating customer information

Learning Objectives:

Learning the role and responsibility of an efficient well rounded AML program. The final rule also creates a fifth “pillar” for anti-money laundering (“AML”) programs required under FinCEN’s rules for banks. Since passage of the USA PATRIOT Act, the four pillars of an AML program—policies, procedures, and internal controls; independent testing; a designated compliance official; and employee training—have formed the foundation for the federal banking agencies’ examination and enforcement practices with respect to AML compliance. The rule establishes a fifth “pillar” pursuant to which banks will be required to establish risk-based procedures for conducting ongoing customer due diligence, including the development of customer risk profiles and implementation of ongoing monitoring to identify and report suspicious activity and, on a risk basis, to update customer information. Get and in depth look at transaction monitoring and recognizing red flags. Understand the key regulations and best practices in building an effective AML program.
