Course description

2022 is behind us!. Crypto-assets were in the headlines. A major crypto collapse near the end of the year did nothing to assure banks or regulators that it’s time to take the crypto-plunge. Congress has yet to act to issue legislation to stabilize the crypto environment.


The Corporate Transparency Act and Anti-Money Laundering Act of 2020 have borne some fruit, with new FinCEN regulations in place requiring entities to start reporting to FinCEN information on their beneficial owners and principals starting January 1, 2024. Bankers are watching carefully for “the other shoe” – rules amending bank’s beneficial ownership gathering requirements – to drop, sometime near the end of 2023.

 The CFPB took up, and the Biden Administration joined, a crusade against “junk fees” as the Bureau focused on overdraft and deposit account fees, brandishing its UDAAP cudgel, with support from prudential regulators, especially the FDIC.

 And the list goes on!

 We’ll hit all the highlights during this fast review of the year’s operations compliance issues and tell you where to find more information on developments you may have missed during the year.
