Special Presentation

Rick McDonell
  • Rick McDonell

  • Executive Director
  • Former Executive Secretary
  • Financial Action Task Force (FATF)


Mr. McDonell was the Executive Secretary of the FATF from 2007 – 2015. Among the many accomplishments at the FATF was the negotiation and approval of the revised FATF Standards, the development of a new, standardized assessment “methodology” for the global FATF network and the start of a new round of FATF mutual evaluations. The new focus of evaluation now extends beyond the technical implementation of FATF standards to examine their actual effectiveness —a dramatic change, which has enabled the strength of AML regimes to be clearly determined. During this period, the FATF Global Network was expanded to nine FATF‐Style Regional Bodies (FSRBs) comprising over 190 countries. Mr. McDonell managed and supervised the FATF’s new fourth-round mutual evaluation program and was the lead for the first evaluation under this new methodology (Spain).

Prior to FATF, Mr. McDonell he worked for the United Nations Office On Drugs and Crime (UNODC), where he was Chief of the UN Global Programme on Money Laundering. In addition, he was the Founder and First Executive Secretary of the Asia Pacific Group on Money Laundering (APG) established in 1998. From 1995 to 1997, he was the Head of the FATF Asia Secretariat, which was the forerunner of the APG.

With over 40 years of experience, Mr. McDonell is a lawyer by training and has had extensive experience as a federal prosecutor and in conducting complex investigations including being in charge of many multidisciplinary investigation Task Forces into organised crime cases both nationally and internationally. He also has had experience in private legal practice and as a university lecturer.
