Summary:

Safeguarding financial integrity is a priority for the international community, including the Fund. Money laundering (ML), related predicate crimes, terrorist financing (TF), and the financing of the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction (PF) pose serious threats to the integrity and stability of some countries' financial sector or to external stability and can also threaten the international financial system. It is increasingly recognized that effective anti-money laundering and combating the financing of terrorism (AML/CFT) frameworks, and financial integrity more broadly, are key to financial stability, and that efforts to this effect should be pursued. Strong AML/CFT policies and measures are therefore crucial to mitigate the attendant threats.
