NEWS: FinCEN proposes AML rules for US fund advisers who operate tens of trillions in funds

The announcement comes a week after the agency proposed similar rules for the real estate sector, part of a wider effort to plug what officials say are holes in the regulatory system that can otherwise allow alleged criminals, corrupt foreign officials and sanctions-barred people and companies to access the US financial system.
