Quick Guide 26: National money laundering and terrorist financing risk assessments
This quick guide explains the role of national risk assessments in addressing money laundering and terrorist financing (ML/TF) risks.
It explains how national risk assessments are conducted, challenges in terms of methodology and data availability, and how well countries are doing at performing them.
NRAs are a critical element of the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) standards on ML/TF. They also provide data in special reports of the Basel AML Index.
