Course description

Are we seeing the demise of de-risking?




During this webinar we will cover the Treasury’s 2023 De-Risking Strategy, as mandated by Congress in the Anti-Money Laundering Act of 2020. The first of its kind, the Strategy examines the phenomenon of financial institutions de-risking and its causes, and it identifies those greatest impacted. It also offers recommended policy options to combat it, including the possibility of regulations to mitigate the effects of de-risking.


De-risking occurs when financial institutions terminate or restrict business relationships indiscriminately with broad categories of customers rather than analyzing and managing the risk of those customers. De-risking undermines several key U.S. government policy objectives by driving financial activity out of the regulated financial system, hampering remittances, preventing low- and middle-income segments of the population from efficiently accessing the financial system, and preventing the unencumbered transfer of humanitarian aid and disaster relief.

The Strategy represents a balancing act between shaping a safer, more transparent, and more accessible financial system, and maintaining a robust framework to protect the U.S. financial system from illicit actors and bolstering national security.

We will examine the future impact and what you should do and know.
