Basel AML Index
The Basel AML Index is an independent annual ranking that assesses risks of money laundering and terrorist financing (ML/TF) around the world.
Published by the Basel Institute on Governance since 2012, the Basel AML Index provides risk scores based on data from 17 publicly available sources such as the Financial Action Task Force (FATF), Transparency International, the World Bank and the World Economic Forum. The risk scores cover five domains:
- Quality of ML/TF Framework
- Bribery and Corruption
- Financial Transparency and Standards
- Public Transparency and Accountability
- Legal and Political Risks
The Basel AML Index is developed and maintained by the Basel Institute's International Centre for Asset Recovery.
