Companies and financial institutions around the world use the Expert Edition of the Basel AML Index to help evaluate money laundering/terrorist financing risks at the country level.
Smaller companies tend to use the Basel AML Index as a standalone geographic risk evaluation solution, as the dashboard enables quick access to 17 key indicators of money laundering/terrorist financing risk for 203 jurisdictions. Others apply it as an independent benchmarking tool to validate in-house risk assessments.
A new API now makes it easier to integrate Basel AML Index data automatically into in-house compliance and risk evaluation systems.
The Basel AML Index API (application programming interface) allows computer systems to request and consume all data available in the Expert Edition in an automated way.
The data covers 17 indicators of money laundering and terrorist financing risk, including:
An 18th indicator on environmental crime will be added at the end of September.
The Expert Edition also highlights sanctions and other lists relevant to evaluating a country’s money laundering and terrorist financing risk, including those issued by the FATF, UN Security Council, US Office of Foreign Assets Control and European Union.
The API is available to existing Basel AML Index users for an extra fee, depending on the use case.
The API is based on the REST standard and delivers the data in JSON format. Requests will be granted on the basis of an individual API key that is connected to the user’s profile.
