Anti-Money Laundering, The Basics: Installment 1 - Introduction to Anti-Money Laundering for Professional Accountants

Sep 21, 2020 | Guidance & Support Tools

This is the first installment of a 6-month publication series titled Anti-Money Laundering, The Basics.

The series provides professional accountants with a better 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. 

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.
