The regulatory environment is changing! The Bank Secrecy Act regulation has implemented a fifth pillar with a mandatory compliance date of May 2018. Are you ready for the Beneficial Ownership Rule? We will guide you through the process and ensure your institution is compliant with the regulation. In addition, our speakers will address frequently asked CTR and SAR completion questions. We will also discuss how your institution can implement an exam-proof risk assessment.

Attendees will receive a copy of Wipfli’s BSA/AML/OFAC policy and procedure template, which has been fully updated to include the Beneficial Ownership Rule as it relates to CIP, CDD, and CTRs.
