The first letters in financial intelligence are SAR.

Intelligence doesn’t just happen. It’s a process. Suspicious activity reports (SARs) form a fundamental component of the financial intelligence cycle.

If an activity is suspicious, it must be reported.

What makes a good SAR?

1. Start with an impact statement explaining why the activity is considered suspicious.

2. Answer the who, what, where, when and how of the suspicious activity but particularly elaborate on why the activity is considered suspicious.

3. Conclude with a clear and concise summary.
