The Cook Islands Typologies Report 2015 (accessible here) contains useful information on the trends and typologies extracted from reports submitted and received by the Cook Islands FIU, including case studies investigated by the FIU with its local and international partner agencies.
The Cook Islands National Money-Laundering and Terrorism Financing Risk Assessment 2015 report is the first by the Cook Islands Financial Intelligence Unit and key agencies of the Coordinating Committee on Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing (AML/CFT Committee) in consultation with the private sector. It represents the progress undertaken by the Cook Islands since the 2008 Money-Laundering Risk Analysis (Assessment), and its continued compliance with the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) Recommendations1 and the relevant Cook Islands Anti-Money Laundering/Counter Financing of Terrorism (AML/CFT) legislation.

In September 2008, the FIU engaged Mr John Walker to assist the Cook Islands in undertaking a national risk assessment using the World Bank model. Mr Walker was an Associate Professor at Wollongong University in Australia who had undertaken a similar study for Australia in 1995 and was subsequently with the International Monetary Fund.
