Money laundering defined

Money laundering is defined as the process used to disguise, or attempt to disguise, the source of funds or assets derived/sourced from criminal or illicit activity.

3 typical stages of the process:

  • Placement: initial deposit of proceeds of crime into the financial system, placement may or may not include the predicate offense from which illicit funds were derived.
  • Layering: conducting multiple transactions and/or transfers to convert illicit funds to another form and obfuscate the true source/original placement. Layering may include transferring the value from one vehicle/object to another including purchase of high value assets (jewelry, vehicles, property) and multiple money transfers from one instrument to another (money orders, checks, bearer bonds, prepaid cards, etc.). Multiple BTC or other crypto transactions between related wallets is a perfect example of layering.
  • Integration – withdrawal or conversion of the funds to a “clean” form.

Terrorist Financing Defined

Terrorist financing is the application of funds/assets, whether legitimately derived or not, to fund terrorist activities and organizations. Funds may be sourced from donations, real business activities, AND from criminal sources such as drug/human trafficking and other illicit industries.
