What the 6th Anti-Money Laundering Directive means for your business
Money laundering is a billion-dollar business: According to estimates by the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), it generates two to five percent of global gross domestic product1. This corresponds to a value of between 800 billion and two trillion US dollars per year. The International Monetary Fund (IMF) estimates the annual volume of global money laundering at as much as $4 trillion.
To counteract this, the European Union (EU) has adopted a number of new money laundering directives in recent years.
On the following pages, you will find out what consequences this has for companies in all sectors. After all, money launderers are not only targeting banks, financial service providers and real estate companies. Goods traders must also ensure that they do not do business with criminals.
