Top 10 High risk countries in 2017 Basel AML Index

The Basel Anti-Money Laundering (AML) Index measures the risk of money laundering and terrorist financing of countries based on publicly available sources. Basel AML Index remains the only index issued by an independent, not-for-profit organisation ranking countries according to their risk of money laundering and terrorist financing.

A total of 14 indicators dealing with AML/CFT regulations, corruption, financial standards, political disclosure and the rule of law are aggregated into one overall risk score.

The Basel AML Index is used by the private sector as an established AML country risk rating tool for compliance purposes, and in the public sector, by NGOs and academia for research and policy measures.
