ACFA - Bank Secrecy Act & Anti-Money Laundering Seminar
January 9, 2013
New York, NY
Laws and regulations designed to combat money laundering, bank fraud and the financing of illegal and terrorist activities have multiplied exponentially since 9/11. Congress, as well as the primary financial institution regulators, have created a patchwork of compliance requirements impacting every aspect of a financial institution’s customer facing businesses. While the USA Patriot Act, the Bank Secrecy Act and other related laws and regulations are most commonly thought of as creating compliance requirements when opening a deposit account or initiating a wire transfer, in fact, the scope of the compliance requirements extend far beyond those basic financial institution products and services; they are deeply intertwined with numerous other products and services offered by financial institutions, not the least of which are lending activities. This program will provide an overview of these basic laws and regulations and insight into what goes on behind the scenes in the compliance area of a financial institution. The panelists will also discuss the role of lender and borrower’s counsel as a front line defense against activities that may violate these interrelated laws and regulations.
Scott Lessne is the Moderator. Cari Stinebower is on the panel and will join David Sharp who is the CCO at CapitalSource.
This seminar is being organized by the Association of Commercial Finance Attorneys.
