ROME’S AML/CFT ECOSYSTEM

ROME IS THE PERFECT LOCATION FOR AMLA TO REACH ITS FULL POTENTIAL IN THE GLOBAL FIGHT AGAINST FINANCIAL CRIME, EXPLOITING MEANINGFUL SYNERGIES

Indeed, Rome is the hub of the Italian AML/CFT system: all the relevant national public authorities have their headquarters in the city (the Ministry of Economy and Finance; the financial sector supervisory authorities - Bank of Italy, CONSOB, IVASS; the Financial Intelligence Unit for Italy - UIF,Guardia di Finanza, Antimafia Investigative Directorate - DIA, National Antimafia and Antiterrorism Directorate - DNA). The National Anti-Corruption Authority (ANAC) is also based in Rome.

All these authorities have acquired valuable expertise in preventing and fighting both money laundering and terrorism financing. Thanks to a decades-long experience in the field, they have been able to set new standards of excellence and procedures in tackling financial crime; and a significant body of knowledge, built on good practices and skills that have grown over time, will certainly help AMLA in achieving its objectives.
The Academia plays a key role too: universities in the Italian capital offer several educational and training programmes, as well as interesting research hubs, on AML-related matters, also thanks to an active support and a strong cooperation from the relevant public authorities.
