Combating Financial Crime

Every criminal case that HSI investigates has a financial nexus. HSI actively pursues financial crime angles to identify and seize illicit proceeds and to target financial networks and third-party facilitators that launder and hide illegal financial gains.

With significant access to financial and trade data, HSI is uniquely positioned to disrupt the operations of transnational criminal organizations profiting from cross-border crime, seizing hundreds of millions of dollars in currency and assets each year.
