How has the regulatory environment impacted digitization and the new banking landscape?


With significant industry and bi-partisan support, bills and amendments have been winding their way through the House and the Senate that would substantially reform the U.S. Anti-Money Laundering system. Along with potential new regulation on the horizon, financial institutions had strains placed on their existing KYC/AML programs as they scrambled to implement the Payment Protection Program under the CARES Act. This current regulatory environment is leading to an acceleration of digitization and workflow automation. 

Our expert panelists each bring a unique perspective on regulation and digitization. Join us as we unpack the challenges you are facing and explore what is working, what is not working and what you should be doing to prepare for the future.
