MONEY LAUNDERING
EXPOSED

REMEMBER WHAT WE'RE FIGHTING FOR

Money laundering is not a victimless crime; the true cost is borne by the victims of the crimes which generate dirty cash. Drug trafficking, fraud, modern slavery, cybercrime and corruption all leave a wake of suffering, and it is this which we are fighting to stop.

If the UK is to effectively combat the flow of illicit funds, frank and open conversations with those on the frontline are required. Through research, opinion and insight, brought together in the 'Money Laundering Exposed' initiative, LexisNexis® Risk Solutions, aims to drive the open debate required to combat money laundering.
