WHF/WHFF Partner Series: The Anti-Money Laundering Act of 2020 

The Anti-Money Laundering (AML) Act of 2020 will bring about the most profound changes to the U.S. AML/CFT regime since the passage of the USA PATRIOT Act in 2001. Among other things, these changes will broadly impact AML compliance and enforcement, make AML supervision more risk-based, and improve and expand information sharing and public-private partnerships. In addition, beneficial ownership information reporting requirements are included through the incorporation of the Corporate Transparency Act, added to the reform bill. As a veteran of AML/CFT issues, John Byrne will highlight the most significant changes in the Act and share his views on how the Act can modernize the AML/CFT system.

Mr. Byrne serves as Executive Vice President, and Chairman of the AML RightSource Advisory Board. He is an internationally known regulatory and legislative attorney with wide-ranging experience in banking and financial crimes. Mr. Byrne has particular expertise in all aspects of regulatory management, anti-money laundering (AML) issues and has served in leadership positions at trade associations, financial services industry groups, and government working groups. John earned his undergraduate degree at Marquette University and his juris doctor at George Mason University School of Law. He currently serves as a special advisor to the ACAMS Advisory board and on Marquette University’s Commercial Banking Board. He is also an Adjunct Professor at George Mason University’s Schar School of Policy and Government.
