Global Finance and the Enablers of Corruption – Professional intermediaries and the evidence of their role in Illicit Financial Flows (IFFs)

A new report from the Global Integrity Anti-Corruption Evidence Programme (GI-ACE) entitled “Global Finance and the Enablers of Corruption” reviews the body of evidence that seeks to demonstrate why and how enablers become involved in IFF schemes, what instruments exist to deter them, and how effective these instruments have been in practice. With ample use of case studies and news reporting, the report illustrates how regulatory frameworks do not operate in a vacuum, but within the context of distinct jurisdictions, and with real-world trade-offs related to privacy, security, and the resources needed for development, implementation and enforcement.
