Huron Consulting and Acuity Team Up to Enhance Services to Financial Institutions

Centerdaily.com reports that Huron Consulting has announced a joint venture with Acuity to offer clients consulting services regarding anti money laundering compliance such as monitoring systems, regulatory compliance, and corporate governance for financial institutions that must abide by AML laws and the Bank Secrecy Act.

Gary E. Holdren, chairman and chief executive officer, Huron Consulting Group mentions:

"Huron's joint venture with Acuity will allow both companies to extend advisory, forensic, and consulting services to financial institutions and others impacted by anti-money laundering statutes, the Bank Secrecy Act and the Patriot Act. The Huron-Acuity team provides clients with the full range of expertise needed to navigate these complex waters."

After September 11, 2001 many laws governing the Bank Secrecy Act and anti-money laundering were expanded, and so many companies and financial institutions were put at risk for civil and criminal liability. This joint venture will enhance the capabilities of both companies to deliver consulting services to clients in the financial sector.
