Egmont Group

The Egmont Group of Financial Intelligence Units was established to address the international aspect of money laundering and terror financing offenses involving multiple money transfers between various parties and countries. The organization currently has 147 member states whom exchange financial information on an ongoing basis through Financial Intelligence Units (FIUs).

The FIUs of member states may share financial information with each other through the Egmont Secure Web encrypted network. Israel has been a member since 2002 and plays an active role in the work of the organization, as well as in its executive bodies.
IMPA's membership in Egmont has strengthened Israel's standing as a partner in the international effort to combat money laundering and terror financing. The 36 Memoranda of Understanding to exchange information that IMPA has signed with its foreign counterparts have advanced and bolstered its cooperative efforts.
In 2012, Head of IMPA, Adv. Paul Landes, was appointed as a member of the Executive Committee and Chairman of the Operational Working Group.
