Season 4

Is the global anti-financial crime regime on the right track? In this season we’ll be taking a reality check of key financial crime policy areas and discussing ‘how it started’ versus ‘how it’s going’. Episodes reflect on the progress and shortcomings over the past 10 years, ascertaining whether policies have achieved their objectives and what needs to be put in place in order to stay ahead of evolving threats in the next decade.

This season covers the system at large as well as terrorist financing; cryptocurrencies; enforcement; sanctions; asset recovery; counter-proliferation financing fraud; and environmental, social and governance issues.
