The Bahamian government and Bahamian regulators are adamantly opposed to financial criminals using Bahamian institutions for illicit purposes. One lesson we have learned is that data driven analysis is highly useful in suppressing financial crime, and in demonstrating to the rest of the world that we are effective in suppressing financial crime.
The Central Bank has created, with welcome support from a number of sponsors, the world’s specialist conference on empirical approaches to AML and financial crime. We intend to continue this conference series indefinitely, on an annual basis. We have been gratified with the number and quality of papers submitted and presented at our conference. We are hopeful that this conference and associated activities not only provide effective platforms for individual researchers to develop their ideas, but that we also contribute to building a more tightly linked and collaborate global body of empirical AML researchers.
