Rising to the Challenge

If you are interested in creating or enhancing an Anti-Money Laundering program for your financial institution or want to learn more about the Bank Secrecy Act, you have come to the right place.

Who We Are

The BSA Coalition was founded in 2008 with the primary objective of providing the tools, resources and expertise to assist financial institutions to create highly effective BSA/AML programs.

Membership  includes bankers and regulatory representatives from various federal and state banking agencies.

Our unique approach comes from the strong desire of those involved to create compliance programs on the leading edge of managing and anticipating ever-changing AML risks.
