The widespread of money laundering around the world is unclear, but current estimations point to 2%-5% of the world's GNP.
Dealing with money laundering and terrorist financing risks becomes more difficult each passing year. On one hand, the global economy and numerous financial instruments are making it difficult to identify and prevent unusual and/or illegal activity. On the other hand, regulators around the world, including Israel, are raising the bar for compliance requirements.
Financial institutions rely on their reputation to build their businesses based on, among others, the investment management of client funds. The prestige of any financial institution might be damaged severely if it is found that its services were used for money laundering. Therefore, prevention of money laundering and cooperation with authorities are in the best interest of any financial institution, which must take responsibility and provide assurances that costumer accounts are managed in accordance with existing regulations.
