On 26 January, the Institute for Chartered Accountants in England & Wales announced that the latest instalment examines asset transfers, and how criminals use it as a primary way to launder money. The ICAEW and the International Federation of Accountants (IFAC) have been releasing their Anti-Money Laundering: The Basics educational series.
