While the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) was complimentary of Denmark's responses to detected money laundering activities such as investigations and prosecutions, they found the country lacking in proactive prevention measures.

The FATF found, in part:

  • Denmark does not have a national strategy to combat money laundering and terrorist financing 
  • Money laundering and terrorist financing risks are not sufficiently assessed or updated
  • Weak implementation of measures to mitigate risks


This report highlights the need for proactive compliance programs and strategy that may prevent money laundering activities rather than respond to them.
