The Serious Fraud Office (SFO) has not applied for any Unexplained Wealth Orders (UWO) to date. However, the SFO is committed to making use of the new powers enacted in the Criminal Finances Act 2017, including UWOs, and they proactively review all cases to see whether the use of this tool would be appropriate.
