Not all high risk customers are created equal

By Chuck Taylor | May 24, 2019
While planning for a panel on Enhanced Due Diligence (EDD) for high risk clients, I was provided with pre-conference questions submitted by attendees.  One of them started with “All MSBs are high risk…”, and another with, “Since all non-profits are high risk…”.  My immediate reaction to both was to wince for a number of reasons, including that it is simply not true and can have the dramatic effect of preventing financial access to those entities and cause unnecessary economic harm.

By AML RightSource | May 23, 2019
Welcome to this episode of our podcast series, AML Conversations. In this edition, we dig deep into how prosecutors in the Commonwealth of Virginia get trained on many areas of law, including financial crime. Vice Chairman John Byrne’s guest, Elliott Casey, a former prosecutor himself, now trains law enforcement officials (prosecutors and investigators alike) on such disparate issues like digital evidence, forfeiture and complex financial crime. Casey also shares his views on the civil safe harbor, an extremely useful protection for financial institutions.

Why I Joined the AML RightSource Team

By Tim White | May 14, 2019

House moving on AML Reform—Can it both occur, and be valuable this year?!

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.
