The FSA has published a Scale and Impact of Financial Crime webpage and two academic papers on the subject. The Scale and Impact Project was launched in 2007 to explore the development of concepts and methodologies that could be used to understand and measure the scale, incidence and impact of different types of financial crime.

The first paper entitled "Scale and Impact of Financial Crime Project: Critical Analysis" provides an analysis of the literature on measuring financial crime. The second paper is entitled "Impacts of Financial Crimes and Amenability to Control by the FSA: proposed framework for generating data in a comparative manner". This paper focuses on fraud, money laundering and market abuse and provides data which could inform the FSA's decision making process in relation to prioritising supervisory and enforcement action and the allocation of financial crime resources.
