Introduction from NSCP Currents:
The Current Landscape of Anti-Money Laundering
Responsibilities of Investment Advisers
“If you ever find yourself in a room full of investment advsiers and are in need of a conversation starter, ask the following question: “Who believes that anti-money laundering (“AML”) regulations don’t apply to investment advisers?” The likely outcome will be a spirited debate with some taking the position that AML regulations do not apply to investment advisers, only to broker-dealers, while others may argue that AML safeguards are part of their fiduciary duty as an investment adviser and therefore there is an obligation to develop AML procedures.
