About Global Financial Integrity

Global Financial Integrity (GFI) is a research and advocacy organization, which fights the massive outflow of capital from developing economies by working to curtail international money-laundering, tax evasion, and corruption. An estimated $850 to $1,060 billion or more flows illicitly out of poor countries every year – 10 times the amount of foreign aid these countries receive from Western economies. These illicit financial flows forestall economic growth and good governance in poor countries and threaten the security of rich countries. By reducing the flow of illicit capital, additional funds will be available for investment in developing nations, which—in turn—will create greater opportunities for development.

In January 2009, GFI launched the Task Force on Financial Integrity and Economic Development (Task Force). The Task Force is a unique global coalition of civil society organizations and more than 50 governments working together to improve transparency and accountability in the global financial system.
