Global criminal activity is estimated to generate over a trillion dollars annually.
Law enforcement officials, legislators, regulators and financial services professionals generally agree that the best way to mitigate the social harm caused by serious crime such as narcotics trafficking, human trafficking, corruption and fraud is to make it as difficult as possible for criminals to enjoy their profits. How is this done? If you have a criminal target, then the basic tenet ‘follow the money’ applies. Absent a known target, though, how do you identify potential money laundering activity?
This is where money laundering risk analysis and risk management techniques are invaluable. What to look for, how to look for it, and what to do about it: These three elements of money laundering risk analysis form the basic toolkit for financial services professionals to protect their institutions from harm, but are also essential for law enforcement officials and regulators in their interactions with financial institutions.
