Boosting Co-operation in Asset Recovery: exploring the Potential of Private Sector Engagement and Public-Private Collaboration

During the two-day virtual seminar, held on 2-3 September 2021, international experts looked at emerging practices to strengthen information sharing between the public and private sectors when identifying, freezing and confiscating stolen assets. Against the background of ever-new methods of money laundering, the participants drew on first-hand experience and analyzed how criminal law enforcement agencies, financial intelligence units (FIUs) and financial institutions can use complementary expertise, information and capacity to enhance economic crime detection and facilitate asset tracing. The result is a compilation of insights on how asset recovery challenges can be addressed and resolved by leveraging advances and opportunities for greater financial information sharing partnerships (FISP) collaboration.
