Trade-Based Money Laundering: Risk Indicators

11 March 2021 – The FATF/Egmont report on Trade-based money laundering: risk indicators

Trade-based money laundering is one of the most complex and widely used methods of money laundering. Criminals use legitimate trade transactions or networks to disguise and move proceeds of crime around the world.

In December 2020, the FATF and Egmont Group of FIUs published a report on FATF/Egmont Trade-Based Money Laundering: Trends and Developments

The trade-based money laundering: risk indicators supplement this report and will help public and private sector identify possible trade-based money laundering. 

The report includes risk indicators on: 

  • the structure of the business
  • trade activity
  • trade documents and commodities
  • account and transaction activity
