Gender Considerations in Balancing Financial Inclusion and AML/CFT

The persistent gender gap has resulted in women’s financial inclusion moving up the international policy agenda.

This guideline note examines data on current practices in the AFI network and is intended to support financial policymakers and regulators responsible for implementing and overseeing AML/CFT standards at the national level. In doing so, it will raise awareness of the specific financial inclusion challenges disproportionately faced by women in the national implementation of AML/CFT standards, and assist in the formulation and implementation of policy responses that can contribute to advancing women’s financial inclusion.
