Office of Terrorism and Financial Intelligence

The Office of Terrorism and Financial Intelligence (TFI) is an agency of the United States Department of the Treasury. TFI marshals the department's intelligence and enforcement functions with the twin aims of safeguarding the financial system against illicit use and combating rogue nations, terrorist facilitators, weapons of mass destruction (WMD) proliferators, money launderers, drug kingpins, serial killers, and other national security threats.

The Office of Terrorism and Financial Intelligence is overseen by the Under Secretary of the Treasury for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence.

TFI oversees the Office of Terrorist Financing and Financial Crimes, the Office of Intelligence and Analysis, the Office of Foreign Assets Control, the Financial Crime Enforcement Network and the Treasury Executive Office for Asset Forfeiture.[1]

According to CNN, the U.S. Treasury Department is the only federal finance agency in the world with its own in-house intelligence agency. TFI freezes assets of drug cartels and terrorists. It has offices around the world, including in such locations as Islamabad and Abu Dhabi.[2]
