FATF - Financial Action Task Force

Webinar on Money Laundering through the Real Estate sector

This FATF webinar will explore how criminals launder the proceeds of crime through the real estate sector and what authorities and the private sector can do to detect and disrupt these financial flows.

The FATF's assessments show that the real estate sector and their supervisors often have poor understanding of the money laundering risks they face and regularly fail to mitigate them. This webinar brings together a panel of experts who will share their perspective and experiences in tackling the laundering of proceeds from illicit activities through real estate transactions.

The discussion will focus on the following topics:

  • The process of disrupting money laundering through the real estate sector, from risk identification mitigation to reporting and cooperation between practitioners and law enforcement.
  • The value of public-private partnerships
  • Supervisory framework and challenges
  • The impact on the real estate sector and market

The webinar will take place on 14 December 2022 from 12:00-13:00 (Paris time). Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions throughout the webinar.
