Suspicious Activity Reports (SARS) in Lending

Gain a better understanding of suspicious activity reporting and the bounds of SAR confidentiality.

Many persons involved in lending arrangements may not fully understand whether the arrangement is subject to anti-money laundering (AML) compliance requirements, including the need to file suspicious activity reports (SARs) with the U.S. Department of the Treasury's Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN), what is required to be reported on SARs, how they are filed with FinCEN, and why they need to be kept confidential. This presentation will help those involved in lending arrangements understand the federal anti-money laundering (AML) compliance requirements applicable to their business, with a particular focus on suspicious activity reporting and the bounds of SAR confidentiality.
