Financial crime and terrorist financing

 The Government has the objective of safeguarding the integrity of the financial system from exploitation by criminals and terrorists. It does this by deploying financial tools to deter, detect and disrupt crime and security threats. The approach taken is effective and proportionate to the risks posed as well engaging with business, law makers and law enforcers.

The Government set out its strategy towards combating money laundering and the financing of terrorism on the 28th February 2007. The strategy sets out the key priorities for increasing the financial challenge to crime and terrorism in the future, and announces new proposals that exemplify the Government's commitment to their delivery.
