ALTA Insights: Red Flags to Detect Sanctions Risk and Money Laundering

While the war in Ukraine continues, the U.S. Government has actively responded to Russia’s ongoing aggression. Recently, the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) took actions against various Russian industries, government officials, and certain high-net-worth individuals and their families. Because of this, title and settlement agents should be reminded they need to comply with requirements against doing business with targeted foreign countries, designated nationals and other actors singled out by OFAC and the U.S. government. Additionally, money laundering remains a significant threat, particularly in connection with potential sanctions evasion. Register for this CertifID-sponsored ALTA Insights webinar to learn how to spot the red flags of money laundering when at the closing table.

ALTA Insights: People-first Leadership Skills for the Busy Title Agency Manager

Historically, command-and-control styles have been the name of the game for title agency managers—bosses who gave top-down orders. Not all, but many.

In other words, they want more leading and coaching, less managing.
