New RUSI programme to support public/private intelligence sharing to fight financial crime across major markets
Yesterday, RUSI’s Centre for Financial Crime and Security Studies launched the ‘Future of Financial Intelligence Sharing (FFIS)’ programme. Launched in collaboration with NJM Advisory, this is a new initiative to support the implementation of information sharing public-private partnerships in several key jurisdictions.
The project is being launched in Paris this week, alongside the Plenary Meetings of the Financial Action Task Force.
Financial intelligence sharing is a leading developmental area of anti-money laundering policy and operational risk mitigation. This programme will therefore seek to share research and insight from the different models of financial intelligence sharing and public-private partnership being developed around the world.
Tom Keatinge. Director of RUSI’s Centre for Financial Crime and Security Studies said: ‘There is very strong private sector and law enforcement interest in the potential of public-private partnerships to disrupt financial crime and achieve a more effective response to money-laundering risk. Without such collaboration, financial crime-fighting outcomes will remain less effective than they might otherwise be.’
Jennifer Shasky Calvery, Global Head Financial Crime Threat Mitigation at HSBC said: ‘The future of financial crime risk management will be determined through innovation in public-private information sharing being tested in different jurisdictions around the world. It will be key to landing on a sustainable and more effective global system to catch bad actors.’
Over the course of 2017, the new programme aims to cover activity in Mexico, Hong Kong, Singapore and the UAE, bringing together key domestic law enforcement, policy and regulatory stakeholders with experts from banking, professional services, business intelligence, academia and NGOs. The programme will provide key decision-makers with access to the latest research and thinking on public private partnerships for financial intelligence sharing.
Our ambition in this programme is to help share emerging lessons across several national examples on the frontier of this incredibly important anti-money laundering and terrorist financing agenda, said Nick Maxwell, Programme Manager for the Future of Financial Intelligence Sharing Programme and Director at NJM Advisory.
The programme is project managed by RUSI's Centre for Financial Crime & Security Studies and NJM Advisory, and is generously supported by HSBC and Thomson Reuters.
