Only countries with sufficient data to calculate a reliable ML/TF risk score are included in the Public Edition of the Basel AML Index. Sufficient data means there is data available for at least 8 out of the 14 indicators, including at least two out of the three indicators in the ML/TF category (see Methodology).

The Expert Edition, which is free for academic, public and supervisory institutions and non-profit organisations, contains a more detailed overview of all 203 countries and their risk scores based on the available data.

Overall score

The Overall Score indicates a country’s risk level in money laundering/terrorist financing based on its adherence to AML/CTF standards and other risk categories such as financial regulations, public transparency, corruption and rule of law.

Country coverage

The ranking covers 129 countries. Countries with insufficient available data (less than 50% of the overall variables) have been excluded in the ranking, which is why some countries that are considered as known money laundering/tax haven jurisdictions are not covered in this edition.

Expert Edition

The Expert Edition includes sanctions such as FATF Public Statements and all additional countries (e.g., Liechtenstein, Monaco and Somalia) to suggest a risk score based on the available data. Please contact for an Expert Edition demo account.
