As per PwC's Global Crime and Fraud Survey 2022, “46% of surveyed organisations reported experiencing some sort of fraud or other economic crime within the last 24 months.”
Fraud, cybercrime, money laundering, terrorist financing, bribery and corruption, market abuse and insider dealing- are all financial crimes and are on a constant rise. This is mainly due to a sharp rise in online business transactions globally, both B2B as well as for the customers.
With increasingly sophisticated techniques and easily available technologies at disposal, there is no limit to the damage that a spurious contact, individual, organisation, or even a simple link may cause. Financial crime prevention and regulatory compliance software solutions are not only important but mandatory in today’s times.
Fragmented and manual systems on the other hand are killing business productivity
Today there are more than twenty anti-financial crime regulations and laws that a firm has to comply with, as against one regulation thirty years back. The firms have responded to this regulation explosion, by deploying operational systems and people as financial crime risk management solutions, as and when a new regulation is announced. This has created a plethora of processes, procedures and systems which are now hindering quick and efficient business operations. This needs to be rectified.

Financial Crime prevention transformation is complex and requires a robust ecosystem that connects data, business intelligence systems, machine learning models, infrastructure and applications to deliver business value. At its core, these systems including the KYC/AML (Know Your Customer/Anti-Money Laundering) and Transaction Screening, are all anomaly detection systems that operate at an immense scale, that we have a lot of experience of developing and managing.
AML Transaction Monitoring and Know Your Customer (AML/KYC) processes in a banking or financial services firm prevent serious financial risk as well as reputational risk for the firm.
AML services generally include a 360° view of overall finances, advanced detection methodologies, and reporting of suspected money laundering activities.
KYC and customer due diligence (CDD) process helps prove the validity of a customer identity and their financial and business processes. The absence of an effective KYC process exposes the firm to greater reputational risk.
KYC Solutions generally include a holistic risk view of the customer lifecycle, including their onboarding process, analysis of their given details, and enhanced due diligence (EDD) processes.
Evolving times of today require organisations to follow best practices and methodologies that include effective CDD processes. The policies and procedures need to be updated with the evolving regulations. For instance - Evidence types, evidentiary sources and risk assessment parameters need to be added or updated based on the evolving regulatory landscape.
Regulatory Compliance Software provides a comprehensive regulatory reporting and filing workflow.
