This report sets out our obligations relating to anti-money laundering, our approach to carrying out those obligations, and the trends and emerging risks in money laundering that we are seeing in the firms we regulate.
Why are we publishing this report?
This is our first annual report on these issues and it focuses on money laundering, financial sanctions breaches and terrorist financing. These are among the most important risks that financial crime poses to our objectives
Who is this aimed at?
All regulated firms. It may also interest consumers and consumer organisations.
What are the next steps?
We will continue to publish an annual report on these issues.
And we will continue to develop our approach as we work with the Government, law enforcement agencies and the industry to spread better understanding of the risks we all face from criminals attempting to use our financial system.
