An Evaluation of the House Financial Services Committee in 2019

By Tim Murphy | January 2, 2019
With the first meeting of the 116th United States Congress near, by now lawmakers have surely dried off from that November wave. As you’ll recall, cresting that swell was a mix of new and old characters who are currently jostling for various leadership positions as Democrats regain control of the House of Representatives.

The 2019 AML List!

By John Byrne | December 18, 2018
As I have done in previous years, will be looking ahead to 2019 and what may be in store for the AML/CTF/Financial Crime Prevention community.

By Edward Ellis | December 6, 2018

The financial sector has certainly embraced their role in preventing and detecting this vast array of crimes but the challenges of resources, training, and overall compliance are major.
