Governments are becoming increasingly committed to preventing criminals from benefiting from their ill-gotten gains. Their concern has led to tougher national legislation and more focused international collaboration, such as through the Financial Action Task Force's 40 + 9 Recommendations and the EU 3rd Directive on the prevention of money laundering. This heightened public sector interest has also led to some interesting international law phenomena including the apparent extra-territorial reach of certain national legislation such as the United States PATRIOT act and the UK Anti-Bribery & Corruption Act.

Why is it that banks appear to be ineffective at identifying and stopping money laundering and what can be done to improve their contribution to promoting business integrity worldwide?
