International

The FIS makes a significant contribution in the global fight against money laundering, terrorist financing and proliferation financing both at a domestic and international level.

The FIS has been an active member of the EGMONT Group of FIUs since its inception in 1995. The group is an informal network of 164 FIUs. Its goal is to provide a forum for FIUs around the world to improve cooperation in the fight against money laundering and financing of terrorism and to foster secure communication among members through the secure communication system called the EGMONT Secure Web (ESW).

The FIS also plays a key role in ensuring that Guernsey complies with initiatives or assessments by other international bodies.

International Legal Assistance

A core function of the FIS is the dissemination of financial intelligence to other EGMONT FIUs, law enforcement agencies and competent authorities.

If, on receipt of financial intelligence from the FIS, a jurisdiction requires assistance for the purpose of investigations or criminal proceedings (including in rem civil proceedings relating to the proceeds of crime), the competent authority for providing mutual legal assistance is the Bailiwick's Law Officers of the Crown.
