Basel AML Index

The Basel AML Index is a leading independent ranking of money laundering and terrorist financing (ML/TF) risks around the world.

It provides risk scores based on data from 18 publicly available sources such as the Financial Action Task Force (FATF), Transparency International, the World Bank and the World Economic Forum. The risk scores cover five domains considered to contribute to a high risk of ML/TF:

  1. Quality of AML/CFT Framework
  2. Bribery and Corruption
  3. Financial Transparency and Standards
  4. Public Transparency and Accountability
  5. Legal and Political Risks

The Basel AML Index is developed and maintained by the Basel Institute on Governance through its International Centre for Asset Recovery.
