Global AML/CFT context

Money laundering and terrorist financing occur throughout the world, irrespective of countries’ borders. The success of AML/CFT strategies therefore requires a global, coordinated response by many actors, both public and private.

 

The European Union’s Global Facility on AML/CFT

The EU Global Facility on Anti-Money Laundering and Countering the Financing of Terrorism was created in 2017 as the European Commission’s operational tool to provide support to third countries based on the deficiencies in their AML/CFT regimes.

 

How We Work

The EU GF-AML/CFT offers various forms of technical assistance to combat money laundering and the financing of terrorism, tailored to third countries’ needs.

 

Our Activities

Our activities cover all aspects of the financial intelligence and the penal chain. Support is available for the detection, assessment, investigation, decision and recovery stages of AML/CFT.

 

Our Blog

Our blog features informative articles that shed light on lesser-known areas of the fight against money laundering and terrorist financing such as art trafficking, microfinance and K9 cash detection, among others.
