Anti-Money Laundering Policy

RUSI’s research aims to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of the global anti-money laundering regime in an evolving financial crime landscape.




Cabot Square, Canary Wharf


RUSI’s projects on anti-money laundering policy focus on tackling the threats of money laundering in the UK and globally through in-depth analysis, recommendations, the development of public-private partnerships and strategic dialogue. Our empirical research and practical ideas build a strong evidence base for policymakers and practitioners to develop improved responses and share best practices. Focus areas include the threats and opportunities of new technologies, digital financial inclusion, analysis of FATF policies and evaluations, kleptocracy and finance as it relates to UK national security.
