What Financial Institutions Should Know.

There have been an increasing number of U.S. initiatives to fight corruption, money laundering, and human trafficking in Central America, including the United States-Northern Triangle Enhanced Engagement Act, Homeland Security’s Operation Sentinel, and the creation of special task forces to increase investigations, prosecutions, and asset recoveries relating to criminal activity in Mexico and the countries of the Northern Triangle.  Against this backdrop, and based on the new enforcement and compliance framework set forth by the Anti-Money Laundering Act of 2020, the speakers will share their insight into the potential impact of the recent U.S. initiatives targeting criminal activity in Central America to banks and financial institutions globally.
