Message from Chief Executive Officer

Since its establishment the FIC has instituted a number of measures geared towards improving Ghana’s Anti-Money laundering/ Combating the Financing of Terrorism (AML/CFT) regime.

The Centre through the use of modern technology software (go-AML) has increased the filing of Suspicious Transactions Reports from reporting entities. The Centre also has highly skilled and dedicated staff who through diverse ways continue to work effectively to address outstanding ML/TF related issues. These strides could not have been possible without the support of stakeholders such as the law enforcement agencies, regulators, reporting entities, private sector and designated non-financial businesses and professions (DNFBPs)

The Centre believes in the strength of collaborating with relevant stakeholders which has resulted in significant achievements over the years. The FIC aims to ensure that Ghana complies with international best practices through the identification of ML/TF threats and vulnerabilities within the Ghanaian economy by completing its National Risk Assessment.

Ghana has also undergone the Second Round of Mutual Evaluation and continue to address identified strategic deficiencies in its AML/CFT regime. By so doing, the FIC continues to work with domestic and international stakeholders as well the general public to take profit out of crime.
