A new survey from the Future of Financial Intelligence Sharing (FFIS) at RUSI reveals international growth of public–private financial information-sharing partnerships to tackle financial crime, from 2015 to 2020, and describes recent activity directed against COVID-19 crime threats. The report provides descriptive summaries of 23 national and trans-national financial information-sharing partnerships and provides new insights into the impact of such partnerships in tackling financial crime; including their role in responding to COVID-19. The 20 groups involved include such bodies as the UK Joint Money Laundering Intelligence Taskforce (JMLIT), the US FinCEN Exchange, the Singapore Anti-Money Laundering and Countering the Financing of Terrorism Industry Partnership (ACIP) and the Lithuania – Centre of Excellence in Anti-Money Laundering.  It is said that countries with a national public–private financial information-sharing partnership now account for 41% of world GDP and 20 out of the top 30 global financial centres are covered by such a partnership model. In 2019 and 2020, the majority of new partnerships were established in the EU.
