New Customer Due Diligence Rules: Are you Ready?
FinCEN has promulgated new rule for customer due diligence that is encouraging, in a very official way, to go beyond the check box mentality that has really plagued all KYC since the first Patriot Act was passed. We will look at requirements for Beneficial Ownership, the 25% threshold is just a beginning, truly understanding your new client so you can anticipate the nature of transactions and know or at least suspect those that are incongruent. While the new rule is in effect, when do you need to be complaint, is the rule retroactive (yes and no) and breadth and depth of the application of the rules. It is not hard, but it is nothing minor and will require customer intake protocols to change.
