Anti-Money Laundering Rule and Requirements
The USA Patriot Act is intended to strengthen U.S. measures to prevent, detect, and prosecute international money laundering and the financing of terrorism. These efforts include anti-money laundering (AML) tools that impact the banking, financial, and investment communities.

As a result of the Patriot Act, persons who are or are required to be registered as futures commission merchants (FCMs), introducing brokers (IBs), commodity pool operators (CPOs), and commodity trading advisors (CTAs) are subject to requirements for establishing AML programs, reporting suspicious activity, verifying the identity of customers, and applying enhanced due diligence to certain types of accounts involving foreign persons.

Organizations that as a part of their normal business activity that do one or any of the following are required to comply with developing an ongoing AML program:

• Report Suspicious Activity;
• Verifying the Identity of Customers;
• Due Diligence Measures for Certain Accounts Involving Foreign Persons;
• Transactions in Excess of $10,000 in Currency;
• Foreign Bank and Financial Accounts;
• International Transportation of Currency or Monetary Instruments;
• Information Sharing among Financial Institutions and Law Enforcement.

Establishing AML Programs
The Patriot Act requires that all financial institutions establish AML Programs.

An AML Program must be in writing and must include:

• the development of internal policies, procedures, and controls;
• the designation of a compliance officer;
• an ongoing employee training program; and
• an independent audit function to test programs.

Who Must Comply?
Covered financial institutions include banks, securities brokers, futures commission merchants and introducing brokers, investment advisers, money services businesses and operators of credit card systems.

Anti-Fraud Provisions
Section 206 of the Advisers Act of 1940 prohibits misstatements or misleading omissions of material facts and other fraudulent acts and practices in connection with the conduct of an investment advisory business. As a fiduciary, an investment adviser owes its clients undivided loyalty, and may not engage in activity that conflicts with a client's interest without the client's consent.

Section 204A, which requires advisers to establish, maintain, and enforce written procedures reasonably designed to prevent the misuse of material nonpublic information. As a part of this requirement, firms are responsible for anti-fraud education and training.

Section 206(3), which makes it unlawful for any investment adviser acting as principal for its own account to knowingly sell any security to, or purchase any security from, a client, without disclosing to the client in writing before the completion of the transaction the capacity in which the adviser is acting and obtaining the client's consent.

Insider Trading Procedures and Duty of Supervision
Section 204A of the Advisers Act requires investment advisers (whether SEC-registered or not) to establish, maintain, and enforce written policies and procedures reasonably designed to prevent the misuse of material, nonpublic information by the investment adviser or any of its associated persons. Investment advisers also have a duty to supervise persons associated with the investment adviser with respect to activities performed on the adviser's behalf.

Suitability Requirements
As fiduciaries, investment advisers owe their clients a duty to provide only suitable investment advice. This duty generally requires an investment adviser to determine that the investment advice it gives to a client is suitable for the client, taking into consideration the client's financial situation, investment experience, and investment objectives.
