ACAMS Spotlight: Mastering Treasury’s New Customer Due Diligence Final Rule

  • When: May 13, 2016
  • Time: 12:00 – 1:00 PM ET
  • Level: All

The U.S. Treasury Department last week released a long awaited final rule that formally requires financial institutions to collect beneficial ownership information from customers at account opening and to ensure the information is accurate on an ongoing basis.

Framed as an enhancement to existing customer due diligence responsibilities financial institutions must meet, the rule will necessitate new policies and procedures and the creation of new recordkeeping capabilities.
