Transatlantic Response to Illicit Finance Taskforce Member
Thoughts on the Taskforce:
The US and the UK are both engaged in significant policy reform effort and operational innovation in the fight against FinCrime - domestically we are seeing a lot of dynamism in those two countries... my hope is that this Taskforce can help support how the two countries can collaborate to bring that same dynamism to cross-border collaboration to address what is, of course, a cross-border problem of financial crime.
