Every month we present a webinar called the AML TurboTalks that covers all the news from the previous month, which covers many topics at a very high level. In our BSA Deep Dive, we take more time to cover some of those news items in detail.
This month, many people might be thinking, “What will the final rules look like for the Beneficial Ownership (BO) requirements?” Therefore, this month’s Deep Dive will focus on the last two notifications of the Request for Comments on the application that individuals will use to request a unique identifier from FinCEN as well as the proposed report to collect BO information from reporting companies. We will also discuss concerns with the proposed rules.
Finally, we will cover information on money laundering that occurs via art and antiquities as well as the lessons learned from the consent orders for Forbright Bank and Coinbase. Other topics will include Bitzlato being designated as a “Primary Money Laundering Concern” and crypto exchanges being used or operated by sanctioned countries.
