With over 112,000 SARs per year, the financial sector submits the most reports to the FIU. It is primarily credit institutions that report. Capital management companies, financial services institutions, insurance companies and others account for only a fraction. Developments in recent years, the planned expansion of BaFin and calls for stricter supervision are increasing the pressure on everyone.

Experts and policymakers often complain that although security systems exist in the financial sector, they are no longer up to the current challenges. Online banks, trading apps, crowdfunding and capital management - they not only open up ever new and better opportunities for customers to manage their own money and invest it profitably through digital services, but are also used by criminals. For example, they use complex cross-border transactions and domestic and foreign intermediaries or straw men and women.
Although many of these transactions sooner or later arouse suspicion, money laundering nevertheless remains attractive. This is because by the time compliance systems check for and detect violations, criminals have long since been able to transfer their illegally generated funds back to other accounts. The trail to those behind the crime is quickly lost, and with it the possibility of stopping money laundering and terrorist financing or the evasion of sanctions.
First and foremost, the legislator is focusing on strengthening the supervisory authorities, for instance for financial service providers, the BaFin (Federal Financial Supervisory Authority). This authority is to be expanded and reinforced with more employees in the next few years. In addition, it is being examined to what extent stakeholders, who are not allocated to the financial sector and thus subject to BaFin's control - this includes, for example, financial companies and insurance intermediaries - could be supervised more closely. The Wirecard case has led to a greater awareness of money laundering, which primarily affects the FinTech sector.
It can therefore be assumed that in addition to increased international cooperation among supervisory authorities and organisations such as the "Anti Financial Crime Alliance" - which also includes Kerberos as a member - strengthened institutions such as the BaFin, the circles of obligated parties or their obligations and assigned supervisory authorities will also be addressed further in the future.
