We Can Change the World*

By John Byrne | June 28, 2019
Working together always works While I have always believed that what we do in the AML community makes a difference, the past two years (at least) have seen the expansion of challenges that demand proactivity. When we work together with groups outside of AML toward a common goal, our impact can be immeasurable.

Where do we go from here?*

House moving on AML Reform—Can it both occur, and be valuable this year?! Since the enactment of the Money Laundering Control Act in 1986, the United States has added, without ever eliminating, a myriad of requirements on the private sector (mainly the financial sector) regarding the detection and reporting of financial crime. Our AML community has consistently called for a comprehensive review of this infrastructure to improve efficiency, set realistic regulatory expectations, and actually fulfill the real mission of the Bank Secrecy Act---getting information into the hands of law enforcement.

Beware of Darkness*

AML legislation as a light? Despite universal A.D.D. in all aspects of policy debate, and the consistent chase for the shiny object, for the first time in years there seems to be an appetite for AML reform, or at least partial change. After attending two programs and watching a House hearing in the past two weeks, I wanted to identify some areas that may see some actual movement.

“Do you want to know a secret?”

By John Byrne | February 19, 2019
One of the most essential activities the AML community can engage in is sharing information, best practices and expertise on the myriad of challenges facing all of us. We at AML RightSource saw that, up close and personal, in late 2018 when we held a closed-door symposium with clients, AML peers and other global experts. In a way, the symposium was modeled after a process I originated while at ACAMS--- taking the age-old notion of information sharing and creating an environment where AML professionals could freely discuss regulatory hurdles, resource limitations and corporate governance in a setting without outside interference. (Note: our global colleagues call it the “Chatham House Rules.”)

Beginnings*

Beginnings* Only just a start Congress starts on a bipartisan basis There have been a few posts and stories (to say the least) about how the change in power in the US congress in 2019 can impact the financial community. With the potential for investigations on everything from consumer abuse to compliance deficiencies and any other scandals, the AML community ignores the legislative branch at their peril. For several previous sessions, it was easy to avoid focusing in what were only occasional hearings but, frankly, very political and in some cases, one sided.
