An entity centric approach to financial crime enables multiple AML processes come together for effective results, allowing banks to build a much richer picture of the individual or corporate than traditional models allow.
Traditional monitoring for suspicious behaviour tends to operate across disjointed, disconnected teams, data and systems. This is ineffective because the context or wider view isn’t considered to determine whether activity is suspicious or not.
Criminals are becoming increasingly sophisticated in how they place and move their money through financial institutions around the globe. Regulators are increasingly sharpening their focus on the use of corporates in facilitating money laundering, and financial institutions must be prepared to structure their AML and compliance obligations in a manner which meet more rigorous regulatory demands.
Use of analytics including AI, ML, and network analysis is proving integral to banks’ strategy to combat these threats. However, to leverage these tools effectively, banks must approach their AML strategy with an entity-centric focus.
