The Unit exists as a Unit of the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe, but has its own governing statutes, giving it a mandate distinct from that of the central bank.
We focus our efforts in these areas:
SUSPICIOUS TRANSACTION REPORTS
- To receive Suspicious Transaction Reports (STRs) from financial institutions and Designated Non Financial Businesses and Professions.
- To analyze the Suspicious Transaction Reports (STRs).
- To disseminate the STRs in the form of financial intelligence to appropriate law enforcement agencies for further investigation and /or prosecution.
COMBAT MONEY LAUNDERING
The Unit is also mandated with promoting the usage of banks as a way to combat money laundering as well as promoting financial inclusion.
