Because People Count
The EU & the fight against financial crime (Part 1)
Accountancy Europe’s podcast Because People Count is back! With the European Commission President citing anti-money laundering (AML) as a priority in her state of the union letter of intent, we delve into the fight against financial crime with Angela Foyle, Chair of Accountancy Europe’s AML working party.
The first part of this interview focuses on AML within the European Union, specifically the European Commission’s AML action plan and why it is important for the EU to implement this. Angela further explores the reasons behind the push for an AML focused agenda, as well as a background of the development of AML from a EU perspective and broader implications of money laundering for EU financial markets.
