Welcome to the Financial Investigation Agency (FIA)

The FIA is one of the key Competent Authorities in the Territory of the Virgin Islands with responsibility for the prevention and detection of financial crime, including money laundering, terrorist financing and proliferation financing. The FIA was established as an autonomous law enforcement agency by the Financial Investigation Agency Act, 2003 (“the Act”), which came into force on 1st April 2004. The FIA’s primary role and functions are contained in section 4 of the Act.

The FIA consists of two (2) operational units:

  • The Analysis and Investigation Unit (AIU), which is responsible for, among other things, collecting, receiving, investigating, analysing, exchanging and disseminating financial intelligence and other information which relate to or may relate to a financial offence.
  • The Supervision and Enforcement Unit (SEU), which supervises Designated Non-Financial Businesses and Professions and Non-Profit Organisations operating in or operating from within the Territory for Anti-money Laundering and Countering the Financing of Terrorism AML/CFT purposes.

Our Vision

The vision of the FIA is to protect the Territory of the Virgin Islands from money laundering, terrorist financing and proliferation financing.


FIA Board

The FIA is guided by a Board, which is ultimately responsible for approving the policies guiding its operations.



The Financial Investigation Agency seeks to recruit and develop individuals who are interested in a viable law enforcement career that serves the territory.
