Tackling Illicit Finance

Videocast series

Illicit Finance creates an immense and unacceptable financial and human cost to society. Historically, public and private sectors have largely tackled the threat independently with some examples of success. However, with lives devastated and less than 1% of the billions of pounds laundered annually ever being recovered, the time has now come for change.

In these videocasts experts from the public and private sectors across the world will explore the scale of this international problem, the barriers to tackling it and the solutions that will improve the outcomes.
