October 25, 2023, Testimony: "I am honored to present my expert opinion before the distinguished Committee regarding the combat against networks of illicit finance and terrorism. As one of the experts who participated in the design of the international regulatory approach to virtual assets, as well as gained practical experience while leading numerous financial investigations of money laundering and terrorism financing, I am honored to share with you several insights and offer actionable proposals both domestically (in the US and elsewhere) and globally (through multilateral efforts, such as within the framework of the FATF). I’ve served as the Chair of the Israeli Money Laundering and Terrorism Financing Prohibition Authority and was also the Co-Chair of the Financial Action Task Force’s (FATF) Risk, Typologies and Methods Working Group. While serving in these capacities, I managed dozens of terrorism financing investigations and shaped global and national policy in the field. In addition, I led the Israeli accession to the FATF following a thorough evaluation process in which Israel achieved a (rare) High Effectiveness rating regarding the use of financial intelligence, terrorism financing investigations and confiscation. Currently, I am an affiliated scholar with the Mossavar-Rahmani Center for Business and Government and the GETTING-Plurality Network at the Harvard Kennedy School and the Berkman-Klein Center at the Harvard Law School. I am also a senior executive at Rapyd, a global payment company." Read Via
