Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing Activities

Book Description

The purpose of this book is to introduce the reader to mechanisms useful for detection and avoidance of money-laundering activities (MLAs) and terrorist financing as well as suggest improvements to existing anti-MLA methods and procedures where appropriate. Money laundering occurs in every country. The significant factor is to diagnose illegal MLAs and apply regulations to mitigate them. To meet this objective, managers of financial instituÂtions need to train their employees about anti-money-laundering proÂcesses and how to diagnose and prevent them. Anti-money-laundering activities can also affect financial systems of a country. MLAs can create a big gap between income classes. Money laundering can also decrease bank's and financial instituÂtion's credibility. This book will be of special interest to financial managers in the priÂvate and public sector and will also be a useful guide for those involved in international financial transactions.
