This working group focuses on human trafficking and child exploitation, and will be launched in Q1 2024.
Production and distribution of child sexual abuse material had an estimated value of between US$3 billion and US$20 billion in 2021 and poses a significant threat to our children. The GCFFC APAC Chapter has established a Working Group to identify, develop and research mechanisms to better detect and disrupt financial flows linked to child online exploitation. Our mission is to partner with the public and private sector, NGOs, SMEs and to establish initiatives from a preventative perspective utilising strategies relating to prevention, risk assessment and asset forfeiture.
The Human Trafficking working group is a new group within the GCFFC and will be formally launched later in Q4 of 2023.
John Cusack is the first Chair of the Coalition, having been elected by Members in October 2020. He was previously Global MLRO at UBS and Standard Chartered Bank and two-time Co-Chair of the Wolfsberg Group. He is an adviser to a number of financial institutions and RegTech providers, and engages with NGOs combating wildlife and human trafficking.
