JLG Legal Risk Management Tip – Anti-Money Laundering as Applied to Investment Advisers

Jacko Law Group, PC (“JLG”) published its monthly Legal Risk Management Tip (“Legal Tip”), written by its Attorney, Robert Boeche this April.  Boeche’s Legal Tip discusses whether anti-money laundering (“AML”) regulations apply to investment advisers, duties owed by investment advisers, and potential regulatory changes that may be occurring in the near future.

The Legal Tip will discuss:

  • Current AML regulations
  • Duties of investment advisers
  • Industry trends regarding AML for investment advisers
  • Anticipated trends and considerations

Boeche explains in the Legal Tip that “Those advisers who currently do not employ a formal AML policy as part of their Policies and Procedures Manual should consider incorporating such a policy, or at the very least, draft policies to specifically address the OFAC program. Advisers already incorporating AML policies should review and routinely test their processes to ensure they are effective.” Please click here to read the Legal Tip in its entirety and learn how your firm can stay ahead of the curve when preparing for  forthcoming regulations and meeting  their ongoing fiduciary obligations to clients.
