Deloitte has taken over an anti-money laundering group and plans to expand its mission.

The AML Strategic Leadership Group, founded by Joe Hanvey in 2002 before he joined Deloitte, provided a forum for discussion of the changes brought to the anti-money laundering world by the USA PATRIOT Act, and to help members develop effective anti-money laundering detection and compliance programs.

The Deloitte AML Strategic Leadership Group will expand upon the organization's original scope and also focus on international anti-money laundering issues, as well as global economic and trade sanctions. Hanvey, who recently joined Deloitte Financial Advisory Services as a senior manager in its anti-money laundering practice, will continue to chair the group and host its monthly webcasts.

The monthly webcasts will continue to bring together practitioners from the financial services industry, government and advocacy groups to discuss the practical aspects of money laundering and sanctions compliance. Past speakers have included representatives from the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network, the Office of Foreign Assets Controls, and the Securities and Exchange Commission.
