New Book: Trade Based Financial Crime - Morris-Cotterill

Company Name

Vortex Centrum Limited


Trade Based Financial Crime is a huge subject that is rarely recognised beyond the narrow and misleading term "trade based money laundering." Now it can take its rightful place as a significant topic.


Financial Crime and commercial activity are intertwined. While there is a simplistic view that the financial sector and law enforcement should concentrate on money laundering in trade. That is far, far from the reality: to consider the financial crime risk and compliance aspects, it is absolutely essential to go beyond "trade based money laundering" or its acronym "TBML".

The starting point in any assessment of risk in commercial activity is not to understand the criminal abuses, but to understand the commercial activity. In this way, the abnormal is more likely to stand out.

That's what Trade Based Financial Crime, Volumes 1 and 2 do.

Building on the commercial activity, the opportunities for abuse can be seen and, because of that, financial crime risk and compliance officers are shown avenues for their Know Your Customer and Customer Due Diligence processes both at the time of customer acquisition and during the business relationship,

Volum 1 is now available as an e-book via's global network.

The Paperback and Hard Cover will be available within the next few days.


Nigel Morris-Cotterill has been a financial crime risk and compliance strategist since 1994 and before that was a solicitor in private practice in London.
