Deloitte expands its Anti-Money Laundering Strategic Leadership group to shift focus on international AML issues

Deloitte
has launched an expansion of the Deloitte Anti-Money Laundering Strategic
Leadership Group (Deloitte AML SLG), which consists of more than 1700 members
from over 170 institutions, to shift its focus on international AML issues.

The AML Strategic Leadership Group founded by Joe Hanvey in 2002 before he
joined Deloitte Financial Advisory Services LLP as a senior manager in its AML
practice, was used as a forum to discuss the changes brought by the USA patriot
act, and to help members develop effective AML detection and compliance
programs.

The Deloitte AML SLG will expand on its original scope of work to focus on
international AML issues, as well as global economic and trade sanctions,
including Office of Foreign Assets Controls (OFAC).

‘The Deloitte AML Strategic Leadership Group continues the industry,
government and peer-to-peer dialogue that contributes to better business
practices and higher ethical standards,’ said Michael Zeldin, principal of the
Deloitte Financial Advisory Services’ Forensic & Dispute Services practice
and global leader of the AML-Trade Sanctions practice.
