Financial Crime Matters: How the “Lucky Country” Became the “Lucky Laundry”

By Kieran Beer

In the latest episode of Financial Crime Matters, Kieran Beer, editor in chief of ACAMS, interviews Nathan Lynch, a manager at Thomson Reuters Regulatory Intelligence and author of “The Lucky Laundry,” a book that reveals how a lack of regulations governing designated non-financial businesses and professions in Australia have inadvertently enabled the movement of billions of illicitly earned dollars into the country’s real estate market and other venues. Beer and Lynch also discuss two recent money-laundering cases against major Australian financial institutions.
