From one point of view it's good because it helps to ensure financial stability (some of the laws were introduced to make sure that financial crisis like in 2008 won't happen again) and it helps to indirectly combat organised crime etc. (because money laundering is used by criminals).
On the other hand, the law doesn't have to be always right so if something is prohibited by law (but shouldn't be) it's also combated by AML. And this whole AML leads to big brother scenario where financial institutions know a lot about clients so the national agencies have a lot of data too. And if the law goes too far in surveillance, it's also bad.
In other words, I wonder whether it's good or rather a gray zone in ethics. What are your thoughts?
