Anti-money laundering (AML) monitoring and investigations

In Banking and capital markets

Your business challenge

Financial institutions that can enhance AML transaction monitoring and investigations can improve compliance while reducing operational costs. But effective AML management is becoming more difficult due to several factors: 

  • Increasingly sophisticated criminal money laundering activity 
  • Emergence of new financial products and channels
  • Fast-evolving AML regulations 
  • Legacy, rules-based systems that generate many false-positive alerts
  • Scarce talent to manage AML compliance; expensive to recruit, train and retain
