The globalisation of markets and commerce has opened up opportunities to sophisticated financial criminals and to transnational crime groups. Financial criminals are exploiting the increasing integration and complexity of the global economy, and the differences in national regulatory and enforcement regimes. Increased volumes of trade are increasing the opportunities for, and decreasing the risks involved in, organised illicit trading. Criminal organisations are exploiting the growing gap between their global reach and the predominantly state-based law enforcement efforts against them.
