Innovation in Countering Illicit Finance: Exploring and Addressing Policy Tensions
The fight against financial crime is on a transformational journey, one that seems to have accelerated over the past five years. The financial services industry continues to evolve, with new products, relationships, and payment methods creating new opportunities as well as new risks. All the while, clients’ expectations are rising as fast as those of policy-makers, and innovative new entrants and traditional financial institutions must operate within an increasingly multi-disciplinary regulatory environment. At the same time, the threat from illicit actors has continued to morph, always trying to stay a step ahead of gatekeepers and law enforcement. All of these developments increasingly strain both the public and private sectors, forcing fundamental discussions about financial crime policy and efficient application of resources.
As we approach the end of the decade, this conference co-hosted by RUSI’s Centre for Financial Crime and Security Studies and the Financial Integrity Network will ask: where would we like to be in five years’ time and how do we get there? What challenges are we facing? And how do we overcome those challenges to get us towards state of greater effectiveness and efficiency in achieving our mission?
Over three panels we will explore the policy tensions that emerge from potentially competing interests, specifically related to (i) information-sharing, (ii) transparency, and (iii) automation, all of which are central issues to the anti-financial crime landscape of the future.
