The true cost of financial crime — Sub-Saharan Africa focus

Financial crime is multi-faceted, multi-national and very often invisible, making it hard to identify, measure and combat. Its impact is felt in many ways. We are committed to uncovering the true scale of the financial crime challenge, to raise awareness and create the data and coalitions that will increase our ability to fight financial crime together.

In our 2018 independent survey with a focus on Sub-Saharan Africa, we reveal the scale of the challenge, we measure the impact it has on business, society and people, and we identify ways in which it can be mitigated.
