To help keep South African business and individuals informed and updated on money laundering and terrorist financing, the FIC publishes and makes available various materials.

Criminals commit different types of crimes to accumulate or gather their proceeds. To use and/or derive value from their proceeds, they can use the financial system to launder their ill-gotten gains. The various methods they use via existing financial and non-financial institutions are published in the FIC’s case studies. These publications are aimed at raising awareness among business and individuals to help identify typical methods criminal use for abusing the financial system.



The FIC uses podcasts, audio, videos, infographics, social media, and other channels to communicate with business, individuals, and the public.

Welcome to the podcast series produced by the Financial Intelligence Centre (FIC). 

The podcasts consist of interviews with subject matter experts and other information to help inform and educate South African businesses and individuals about the work of the FIC and its efforts to prevent, detect and disrupt financial crime.

Topics covered do not relieve the listener from the responsibility to exercise their own skill and care in relation to the users’ legal obligations.

Media engagement approach

As South Africa’s national financial intelligence unit, the FIC is responsible for producing financial intelligence for the use of competent authorities in their investigations, prosecutions, and applications for asset forfeiture. The FIC administers the FIC Act as part of government’s framework for combating money laundering, the financing of terrorism and weapons of mass destruction. For more information on the FIC Act and the work of the FIC visit the About page.

In responding to media queries, the FIC is limited to providing broad information about its oversight role and function. It is not able to comment on the work of the supervisory bodies, accountable institutions nor that of the competent authorities, which are independent of the FIC.

Confidentiality requirements, emanating from the FIC Act and the nature of its work prevent the FIC from disclosing or denying whether:

Any disclosure related to the above would be contrary to the provisions of the FIC Act and could put at risk the FIC, its partners, institutions that report to it, persons who report information to the FIC and any other persons or entities concerned.
