What is AML-ology?

AML-ology is the study of AML trends, challenges, and solutions for banks and non-bank financial institutions alike. We believe that the success of an AML program depends on communication, and more importantly communication among the AML community. In today's information age, it's crucial to understand how other professionals and institutions are handling their day-to-day challenges, and how it might be helpful or translatable to other organizations.

AML-ology achieves this discussion through the curriculum we publish monthly, survey reports conducted quarterly, virtual classes (AKA webinars) on a variety of subjects, networking and learning events, and more!
