The Antiquities Coalition’s Financial Crimes Task Force has issued its report about the use of art to launder money and pay for illegal activity. In this installment of AML Voices, members of the Task Force discuss what the recommendations will mean for the US art market and what actions participants in the market may need to take if the recommendations become law.
The US art market represents $28.3 billion of commerce that has no anti-money laundering regulations. The Task Force is composed of members from the art, financial, and legal communities, and includes former law enforcement and government officials. You can read the Task Force Report here.
