Financial Services attorneys Guy Dempsey, Gary DeWaal, Kevin Foley and James Van De Graaff will co-present the webinar "Understanding FinCEN's New Customer Due Diligence Obligations" on Thursday, May 19 at 12:00 p.m. ET. The presentation explores FinCEN's published new rules regarding customer due diligence and other anti-money laundering obligations for banks, brokers and dealers, mutual funds, futures commission merchants, and introducing brokers.

  • an overview of current AML expectations, including the customer identification program and suspicious activity monitoring;
  • history of the new FinCEN rule;
  • extension of CIP to cover beneficial owners of legal entity customers (e.g., corporations, partnerships and similar organizations);
  • formalization of suspicious activity monitoring and reporting obligations; and
  • the distinctions between requirements for different covered entities.
