Updated Guidance on Anti-Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing Measures and Financial Inclusion
25th February, 2013
Following the revision of its Recommendations in February 2012, FATF adopted an updated version of its Guidance on financial inclusion in February 2013. It focuses in particular on the reinforcement of the risk-based approach (RBA), as a general and underlying principle of all AML/CFT systems. FATF believes that the development of risk-sensitive AML/CFT frameworks will be a key step for countries that wish to build a more inclusive formal financial system, and give access to appropriate financial services to a larger proportion of the population, including the most vulnerable and unserved groups.
