Global Financial Integrity (GFI) works to curtail illicit capital flows out of developing countries. In doing so, our efforts will positively impact development efforts worldwide by reducing capital flight from developing and transitional economies. Our mission stems from the estimate that some $500 billion or more leaves developing and transitional economies and is deposited into western accounts. Illicit capital flows undermine the goals of the World Bank and other lending institutions, strip developing nations of critical resources, and contribute to failed states. GFI’s objective is to promote the curtailment of the flow of illicit money from developing and transitional economies into western economies in order to increase the amount of capital available for investment and job creation in poor countries.
