Given the increasing complexity and debilitating consequences of money laundering over recent years, financial authorities have sought to put in place numerous efforts to protect banks from financial fraud and reputational damage via compliance rules. Risk assessment has been used as a basis to develop AML programs, highlighting areas of the bank’s risk exposure and any potential gaps in their controls.
In keeping to the stringent compliance guidelines, banks typically pour significant time and money into AML efforts, especially in manual labor. To rationalize cost and increase efficiency and accuracy of AML efforts, there has been a growing focus on implementing automation and intelligence to augment AML procedures.
