Despite decades of international efforts, bad actors continue to take advantage of vulnerabilities in the global financial system to move their illicit proceeds. A spate of high-profile scandals have highlighted the critical role played by European and US financial institutions in facilitating the illicit finance of corrupt politicians, criminal enterprises, terrorists, and hostile states.

However, political momentum is building to address the critical gaps in domestic and global governance, in both the US and EU. As the world’s two greatest financial and economic blocks, the EU and the US have a unique opportunity to work together to shape global rules and behaviours. This Policy Dialogue brings together officials and experts from both sides of the Atlantic to discuss how the financial system should be reformed and how the US and EU can best work together to tackle illicit finance.
