Money laundering is a fast-growing problem for many different industries in today’s global economy. Money laundering scandals, both in the U.S. and abroad, have become staples of media reports. As new financial products and services continue to be developed, regulators around the globe have proposed or implemented regulations to prevent their misuse, including by requiring providers to implement robust compliance programs to prevent the misuse of the financial system by criminals and terrorists.
And, because so many white collar offenses are money laundering predicate offenses, including trade violations, public corruption, securities fraud, bank fraud, and other offenses, companies and professionals outside the financial sector need to be aware of anti-money laundering and counter terrorist finance (AML/CFT) laws and regulations – as well as the federal criminal statutes prohibiting money laundering.
