This conference was hosted by American Conference Institute.  With the number and variety of prepaid products expanding at a rapid pace, it is more important than ever to ensure compliance with the myriad state and federal regulations and emerging legislation that impact the prepaid industry.  As new features are added to existing products, regulations that were previously not applicable are now relevant.  New AML initiatives require the reassessment of compliance processes and procedures to make certain that they adequately mitigate the risks of money laundering and fraud.
