In today’s global economy, financial institutions face an ever-changing and increasingly complex regulatory environment. The current pandemic is highly likely to compound the situation, bringing yet-another consumer credit crisis and several high-profile compliance breakdowns after that.
With increased emphasis on consumer protection, the regulatory agencies are focused on institutions’ customer practices and regulatory compliance performance like never before.
Over the past few years, the volume of regulations has risen dramatically. Larger multinational banks have to comply with enormous complex national and international regulations that in some cases get even more complicated due to individual regulator’s discretion and judgment. Even local and smaller banks face the same dilemma.
Many regulations are broad and still evolving and yet, have stringent implementation guidelines mandated.
Moreover, compliance failure can result in litigation, financial penalties, regulatory constraints, and reputational damage that can strategically affect an organisation.
This points to questions:

The manual and semi-automated nature of current AML compliance efforts slow down processing timelines and impact business productivity.
The immense volume of data that financial institutions are expected to comb through to meet regulatory requirements to detect and report suspicious activity becomes a daunting challenge.
The data is usually diverse and subpar. It’s common for systems to use only a subset of available data when generating alerts. Traditional transaction monitoring systems are unwieldy to maintain and rely on rules and thresholds that are easy for criminals to test and circumvent.
Investigation processes tend to be highly manual, from gathering the supporting data for a case to submitting a complete SAR (suspicious activity report). Meanwhile, the money launderers are working night and day to remain hidden, constantly engineering new ways to conceal the flow of funds.
Traditional anti-money laundering (AML) and combating the financing of terrorism (CFT) tools and tactics take longer and cost more than they should.
To fortify the defence, financial institutions need ways to:
