What is Illicit Finance?

Illicit Finance (IF) is at the forefront of the international agenda. Governments, academia, and the financial services industry worldwide are joining forces to combat fraud, money laundering, tax evasion, cryptocurrency, international bribery, and human trafficking. Although the exact scale of the problem is unknown, IF has devastating effects on economies. Now is the time to develop best practices and determine where efforts should be targeted to make the most impact.
