Published annually, the Public Edition of the Basel AML Index ranks countries with sufficient data to calculate a reliable risk score. It is a snapshot of global ML/TF risks and progress by countries and regions over time.
The Basel AML Index is an independent country ranking and risk assessment tool for money laundering and terrorist financing (ML/TF).
Produced by the Basel Institute on Governance since 2012, it provides holistic money laundering and terrorist financing (ML/TF) risk scores based on data from 18 publicly available sources such as the Financial Action Task Force (FATF), Transparency International, the World Bank and the World Economic Forum.
The Expert Edition is a subscription-based tool for anti-money laundering professionals and others involved in compliance, due diligence and risk evaluation.
Updated quarterly, the interactive map and dashboard cover 203 countries, with multiple options to filter and download the data, as well as access to jurisdiction profiles and comparison of the risk scores to regional and world averages.
The Expert Edition Plus offers a detailed comparative analysis of the FATF Mutual Evaluation Reports. This allows users to assess each FATF recommendation individually by focusing on specific compliance needs, for example due diligence or terrorist financing regulations.
The Basel AML Index Expert Edition and Expert Edition Plus are FREE for public-sector, international, non-profit, academic and media organisations.
