The Financial Action Task Force (FATF) and the Asia Pacific Group (APG) have jointly assessed the United States’ anti-money laundering and counter-terrorist financing (AML/CFT) standards. Among the major findings of the report were:

  • The United States has a comprehensive legal and institutional framework for investigating and prosecuting money laundering and terrorist financing offenses.
  • The United States vigorously pursues, seizes and confiscates the assets of criminals involved in money-laundering and terrorist financing.
  • The United States has an effective regulatory and supervisory framework for monitoring compliance with AML/CFT measures and has imposed severe financial penalties on financial institutions that do not comply with the measures.
  • Customer identification requirements apply to most types of financial institutions; however, these could be strengthened, particularly in relation to the identification of beneficial owners.
  • AML/CFT measures presently apply to a broad range of financial institutions; however, the FATF recommends that comprehensive AML/CFT measures should also apply to a wider range of non-financial businesses and professions.
  • Company formation procedures and reporting requirements are such that the information on beneficial ownership of legal persons may not, in most instances, be adequate, accurate or available on a timely basis.
