Financial Crime: Analysis of firms’ data


November 13 2018

The results of the first FCA annual financial crime survey of over 2,000 UK firms, across the financial sector, are available below. The survey gives a collective view of the activity being undertaken by firms in the UK to combat financial crime across the industry.

The survey covers four main areas:

  • the number of customers deemed to pose a higher risk of financial crime
  • an overview of the work that industry is doing to tackle financial crime
  • industry views on fraud risks
  • firms’ view of country risks

Firms submitted returns to the survey during 2017, providing data for the previous 12-month period.
