The Basel AML Index annually assesses the risk of money laundering and terrorist financing (ML/TF) around the world. The risk score covers five domains; namely: Quality of Anti-Money Laundering/Combating the Financing of Terrorism (AML/CFT) Framework, Bribery and Corruption, Financial Transparency and Standards, Public Transparency and Accountability, Legal and Political Risks. Overall, in defining a country’s vulnerability to ML/TF and its capacities to counter it, the South Asian region has shown the highest overall risk score exceeding the global average across all categories.
