Making its debut in the French and English lexes vis-à-vis France's La Terreur more than two centuries ago, the word “terrorism” has grown and developed in myriad ways. This chapter aims to provide a primer concerning the plethora of actors and agents involved in anti-money laundering (AML) and countering terrorist financing (CTF). It explores the relationship between terrorism and the accumulation and management of financial wealth. Following this, the chapter turns to the issues of ML and TF as a matter of disentanglement. It then considers select agents of terrorist financing. Subsequently, the chapter examines key agents involved in CTF. We conclude by addressing ongoing challenges within the field of CTF that all states will need to jointly overcome if their CTF strategies and efforts are to be considered viable paths towards overcoming this transnational problem.
