Episode 8: Fighting Financial Crime: Insights with Danny Glaser

The financial crime and sanctions world has mushroomed into a global industry. Thousands of compliance officers, analysts, policymakers and law enforcement officials are involved in some element of this behemoth. Among these many thousands, a few figures have emerged as opinion formers – those who found themselves at the forefront of developments.

In this episode, host Tom Keatinge, Director of the Centre for Finance and Security at RUSI, is joined by Danny Glaser who has spent over 20 years at the heart of US efforts to advance the fight against financial crime. They talk about sanctions, terrorist financing, and the ‘most powerful organisation few have ever heard of’: the Financial Action Task Force (FATF).
