What is an FIU?

A Financial Intelligence Unit (FIU) serves as a national centre for the receipt and analysis of Suspicious Activity Reports (SARs) and other information relevant to money laundering, associated predicate offences, financing of terrorism and proliferation financing.  An FIU is also responsible for the dissemination of the results of the analysis of SARs to other FIUs, law enforcement agencies and authorities both domestically and internationally.  An FIU should be operationally independent and autonomous to carry out its core functions in line with the international standards set by the Financial Action Task Force (FATF). 

The Financial Intelligence Service ('FIS') is the Bailiwick of Guernsey's FIU.

A short video published by the EGMONT Group of FIUs will explain in more detail the role of an FIU, this can be found within the links section of this page.
