What is an FATF Greylist?

The Financial Action Task Force (FATF) is an intergovernmental organization that develops and promotes policies to combat money laundering and terrorist financing. The FATF maintains a list of countries that it believes are not doing enough to address these issues, known as the “greylist.” Being on the greylist can result in increased scrutiny and financial restrictions for a country, as well as damage to its reputation. The FATF works with countries on the greylist to help them implement the necessary measures to address money laundering and terrorist financing, with the goal of eventually removing them from the list.
