Course description

2020—What a year!. There were revisions to the Call Report. The SECURE Act made important changes affecting retirement plans, including IRAs, and OFAC made its usual collection of announcements of sanctions program and SDN List changes, OFAC violations and settlements. There was guidance from FinCEN and progress on the Fed’s goal to provide faster payments. Funds availability policies were changed by amendments to Reg CC. The IRS finalized changes to the life expectancy and distribution tables affecting minimum distributions from IRAs and other retirement accounts, to be effective in 2022.


There was increased encouragement of innovation in the provision of financial services and in products, services and approaches to enhance anti-money laundering and countering the financing of terrorism efforts. FinCEN made CTR filing changes, and suspended some of those changes.


And, of course, there is the ongoing CORONA-19 pandemic that affected some of those and other regulatory changes, and made huge changes in the way banks deliver their services.
