Local financial crime experts share knowledge with Kenyan counterparts

Two financial intelligence analysts from the Government of Kenya’s Financial Reporting Centre (FRC) are visiting Jersey this week to spend time with the local Joint Financial Crime Unit (JFCU).

The Kenyan analysts will learn about some of the procedures used by Jersey’s JFCU to help the Kenyan authorities to develop their capabilities.

They will learn about intelligence processing, the role of the analyst, working with partners and work on case studies.

In addition to the team at JFCU, the Kenyan analysts will meet an anti-money laundering officer from a local company, as well as experts from the Law Officers’ Department, and regulation and enforcement professionals from Jersey Financial Services Commission (JFSC).

The visit is supported by the UK’s National Crime Agency (NCA) as part of their ongoing work with Kenyan anti-corruption agencies.

“As a leading international finance centre Jersey offers a unique perspective on developing legislation, regulation and operations to tackle financial crime," said Dale Barnett, Regional Manager for the NCA at the British High Commission in Nairobi. 

"This visit is an excellent example of the way we can collaborate with Kenya and Jersey to protect security and promote the economy.”

Detective Chief Inspector Mark Coxshall added: “Tackling financial crime is a transnational challenge that requires collaboration with partners from all over the world. We therefore welcome the opportunity to share our own experience and best practice with our Kenyan counterparts so that they can further develop their capabilities in this field.”
