Crime Trends – AML Educational Series


Together with ICAEW, The International Federation of Accountants (IFAC) have released a new instalment in its Anti-Money Laundering: The Basics educational series: Instalment Eight: Crime Trends.  
The publication is part of a series helping accountants enhance their understanding of how money laundering works, the risks they face, and what they can do to mitigate these risks and make a positive contribution to the public interest. Instalment eight looks at recent crime trends like human trafficking and terrorist financing and the role money laundering plays.  
Anti-Money Laundering: The Basics is featured on both the IFAC (landing page) and ICAEW websites and available for download for free. To be globally relevant, the series uses the risk-based approach of the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) – the global money laundering and terrorist financing watchdog -- as a starting point.
