U.S. regulators have dedicated significant resources to and established enforcement frameworks for cryptocurrency . The Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) and the U.S. Patriot Act, among other related AML laws, have complex requirements with severe penalties for noncompliance — not to mention the reputational harm of terrorist financing and facilitating the movement of illicit funds. Aprio’s team, led by Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialists (CAMS), helps you build AML, OFAC/sanctions and FCPA compliance programs that not only help withstand the scrutiny of regulators, but also improve your financial crimes compliance program to provide you with a competitive advantage when working with financial partners — including payment facilitators, card associations, customers, banks, investors and others.
