The USA Patriot Act and its impact on financial institutions.

The USA Patriot Act (USAPA) strengthens the disclosure requirements for foreign banks that have correspondent relationships with banks in the United States. Specific sections of the Act require that any such foreign bank with a correspondent relationship must maintain a registered agent for purposes of legal process receipt.
