As we begin the new year, we look back at the most-read posts on Money Laundering Watch, Ballard Spahr's blog focused on money laundering, the Bank Secrecy Act (BSA), anti-money laundering (AML), counter-terrorist financing, and global financial corruption. It was a very busy year in the world of money laundering and AML/BSA, and the posts highlighted below address many of the key issues we've examined this year:

This was the second year of Money Laundering Watch, and we want to thank our many readers around the world who continue to make this blog a success. The feedback we receive from financial industry professionals, compliance officers, in-house and external lawyers, AML/BSA consultants, government personnel, journalists, and others interested in this field is invaluable, and we hope you will continue to share your perspectives with us. We pride ourselves on providing in-depth discussions of the important developments in this ever-evolving area.

We also would like to thank the other platforms that host our blog: Digital Currency & Ledger Defense Coalition, Money Laundering Bulletin, and Federal Tax Crimes.

We've started the year on a good note with Money Laundering Watch highlighted as this week's "Featured Blawg" for the ABA Journal. We look forward to continuing to keep you informed in 2019.
