U.S. Anti-Money Laundering Act of 2020: Raising the Bar of Regulatory Expectations

The U.S. AML regime was long overdue for an overhaul, and the AMLA 2020 includes a number of important reforms.

Boston, August 4, 2021  With a focus on promoting more informed and action-oriented outcomes, the Anti-Money Laundering Act of 2020 is designed to elevate innovation and collaboration, and drive greater AML control effectiveness and efficiency. Financial services firms will welcome some of these changes—those that will phase out obsolete requirements. But other changes will entail more work and more regulatory hurdles for regulated entities. The good news is that many of the AMLA 2020 provisions require the U.S. Department of the Treasury to enact regulations before enforcement can take place; therefore, the industry has some time to prepare.

This Impact Brief discusses key provisions of AMLA 2020 and explores its impact on how both the private and public sectors will fight money-laundering.
