Event Summary

A series of anti–money laundering (AML) supervisory fiascos since 2018 have raised doubts about the integrity of the EU financial system. In July, the European Commission published wide-ranging proposals for reform, including the creation of a new EU AML Authority. Will it be enough to deter malpractice and restore confidence?
