Financial Intellignece

The Suspicious Transaction Reporting Office (STRO) receives, analyses and disseminates financial intelligence collated from Suspicious Transaction Reports (STRs), Cash Movement Reports (CMRs) and Cash Transaction Reports (CTRs). These reports play a pivotal role in the Anti-Money Laundering/Counter-Financing of Terrorism (AML/CFT) regime in Singapore. Over the years, there has been a significant increase in the number of STRs, CMRs and CTRs received. This reflects a higher level of AML/CFT awareness in Singapore.


International Cooperations

STRO is a member of the Egmont Group of Financial Intelligence Units (FIUs) and we have collaborations with the international network of foreign FIUs to combat crime.


Community Partnership Activities

STRO organizes meetings and discussion forums to share crime trends and typologies with the financial and business community, industry associations and domestic law enforcement agencies. Such engagements have been effective in enhancing the quantity and quality of financial intelligence received by STRO and the use of financial intelligence to fight crime.
