The Financial Action Task Force (FATF) monitors jurisdictions to ensure compliance with Anti-Money Laundering and Countering the Financing of Terrorism (AML/ CFT) requirements. The FATF’s process identifies certain jurisdictions as having strategic deficiencies in their AML or CFT regimes.

The jurisdictions identified by the FATF process appear in two documents:

  • “FATF Public Statement” that lists jurisdictions subject to the FATF’s call for countermeasures or are subject to Enhanced Due Diligence (EDD), given their AML/CFT deficiencies, and
  • “Improving Global AML/CFT Compliance: on-going process” that identifies jurisdictions the FATF deems to have AML/CFT deficiencies.

Recently, the FATF updated both documents. Alternative Investment and Asset Management Firms should consider these changes when reviewing their Fund Administrator’s enhanced due diligence obligations and risk-based policies, procedures, and practices for jurisdictions identified by the FATF’s latest Advisory.
