Anti-money laundering has become increasingly important and complex for anyone involved in international financial services - from bankers, fiduciaries and trustees to lawyers, accountants, fund managers and many others. The USA Patriot Act and the FATF's standards regarding anti-money-laundering (AML) and to combat the financing of terrorism (CFT) are just two significant measures which, together with other relevant legislation in individual countries, have created a complex, globally interconnected system of laws and regulations that international financial professionals must understand. The complexity of AML/CFT regulations in different countries is so immense that there is an obvious need for a practical, concise handbook that gives clear information in this field for all those involved in relevant international business. Anti-Money Laundering: International Law and Practice gives a concise overview of: how institutions like the UN Security Council, the EU or the Wolfsberg Forum develop ways to fight money laundering and terrorist financing, and how the Recommendations of the FATF and the Directives of the European Commission concerning AML/CFT are implemented in the legislation of their member countries includes detailed information from a wealth of specialists outlining the implementation of anti-money laundering measures in a total of 41 countries and territories. Accordingly, the handbook is a must for anyone whose activities are affected by AML/CFT regulations as well as the principal point of reference in this field from an international perspective.Muller, Wouter H. is the author of 'Anti-money Laundering International Law and Practice', published 2007 under ISBN 9780470033197 and ISBN 0470033193.
