How to Combat Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing

Edited By Richard Pratt


How to Combat Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing is a detailed overview of what is expected for regulators and practitioners when establishing defences against money laundering and the financing of terrorism. Building on the FATF recommendations and publications from other bodies, the book gives regulators a practical guide as to how international standards can be adapted to national circumstances and provides the leaders of financial institutions with a guide as to how they can implement a firm-wide compliance strategy, which complements the work of regulators.

Book description

The war against money laundering, like the war on terrorism and the war on fraud, is not going to go away. Financial regulators and central banks around the world are in the front line of these “wars”.

Governments have stepped up further their demands that all jurisdictions apply international standards and norms – and enforce them effectively.

But this is easier said than done. With the best will in the world, regulators often find these requirements very difficult to implement in practice.

For the many national authorities undertaking or planning significant reforms of their anti-money laundering regimes, there is little independent guidance, as much of the literature in this field is focused on how financial institutions can comply with regulation.

How to Combat Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing fills this gap by providing an objective, independent guide to designing a successful anti money laundering regime, complying with international standards and implementing them effectively.

The book offers the leaders of financial institutions a strategic view of how they can implement firm-wide compliance strategies which complement the work of regulatory authorities.

The book is edited by expert Richard Pratt, former director general of the Jersey Financial Services Commission, and now a regulatory consultant with experience of advising on and conducting assessments of anti-money laundering systems for countries around the world.
