Anti-Money Laundering Strategic Leadership Group
Deloitte Financial Advisory Services LLP
The Deloitte Financial Advisory Services LLP (Deloitte FAS) Anti-Money Laundering Strategic Leadership Group (AML SLG) is an advisory group that focuses on current anti-money laundering (AML) and economic and trade sanctions (ETS) developments facing the financial services industry.
The group originally was created in October 2002 outside of Deloitte FAS under the name Strategic Leadership Group, to discuss changes brought on by the USA PATRIOT Act that would have an impact on the AML industry. The AML SLG has since broadened its focus to encompass the evolving global AML/ETS standards and regulatory expectations.
The overarching goal of the AML SLG is to provide financial institutions with the tools they may need to establish and maintain an effective AML/ETS compliance program consistent with regulatory expectations. The AML SLG facilitates an open dialogue among private sector participants, government regulators and law enforcement officials to help financial institutions understand their obligations under global AML/ETS regulatory regimes, thereby enabling them to improve their domestic and global compliance programs.
The AML SLG hosts monthly calls to discuss the practical aspects of money laundering and sanctions compliance.

How We Can Help
The AML SLG facilitates the industry, government and peer-to-peer dialogue that can contribute to a better understanding of issues, which, in turn, can result in improved compliance practices.
The AML SLG’s meetings take place via Webcast to accommodate participants around the world. Speakers have included authors, professors, regulators and other senior industry practitioners. In addition, the AML SLG hosts in-person roundtable discussions around the United States and working groups focused on terrorist financing, due diligence, surveillance, AML testing and examination preparedness for routine regulatory reviews. In the coming months, the in-person roundtable discussions will be conducted internationally.
