Companies, trusts, foundations, partnerships and other legal persons and legal arrangements play an important role in our economy as well as in society. Under certain conditions, however, they can be misused for illegal purposes such as money laundering, terrorist financing and other illegal activities.

Building on the findings of the 2019 National Risk Assessment, the sector-specific risk assessment examines the vulnerability of legal persons and other legal arrangements established in Germany under German law to misuse for money laundering and terrorist financing purposes.

The sector-specific risk assessment was conducted by different ministries under the leadership of the Federal Ministry of Finance and is based on the findings and evaluations of a number of different competent authorities.
