Our ambition is to tackle some of today’s most damaging crimes by making the financial system a hostile environment for criminals and terrorists. Access to the financial system helps transform lives around the world, helping to reduce poverty and spur economic development. But the financial system is also used by those involved in some of today’s most damaging crimes – from human trafficking to terrorism, corruption and the drug trade.
Criminals seek to exploit the financial system in order to move the proceeds of their illicit activity around the world. But whenever money moves through the financial system it leaves a trail. That's their Achilles’ heel and we're determined to do everything in our power to use it against them.
