Supervising the private sector’s efforts to combat money laundering

Lessons learnt: moving from ticking boxes to mitigating risks


Since 2012, addressing risks is at the centre of FATF’s requirements on anti-money laundering and counter-terrorist financing. The private sector and their public-sector supervisors are at the front-line of combatting illicit finance. But putting in place a risk-based supervision programme has its challenges.

We heard from the authors of the FATF’s Guidance on Risk-Based Supervision and learned more about assessing risks and applying that understanding to prioritise supervisors’ day-to-day work.

We also heard from the private sector and the financial inclusion community on what effective supervision means to them.
