Transaction monitoring is key component of AML compliance
Software can give teams a complete view
Nowadays, it has become mandatory for compliance teams to think about regulation in a holistic way, and to find improved methods of managing the vast amount of transactional data being collected each day.
Organisations must comply with Anti-Money Laundering (AML) rules, with the main purpose of detecting and reporting suspicious activity. This is effectively achieved through the use of an AML transaction monitoring solution. By monitoring and analysing cash deposits, withdrawals, and wire transfers, AML transaction monitoring software can provide the compliance team with a complete view into a customer’s profile, risk levels, and predicted future activity.
There is a growing focus on monitoring every transaction, which leads to the importance of adopting a broad-based approach towards dealing with business risk. Organisations need to be able to identify potentially unusual financial transactions which might subsequently prove to be suspicious within the context of existing anti-money laundering regulations. The mapping of these data points is critical for a full picture of the client’s profile, their commercial activities, private wealth distribution, and management structure.
Although many organisations have implemented robust and costly Know Your Customer (KYC) solutions, the problem often remains in the identification of suspicious transactions. This tends to involve submitting large amounts of alerts, many of which are false positives, without any form of analysis. Consequently, compliance teams are flooded with information which reveals very little intelligence. Therefore, KYC cannot simply be a random data grab if it is to provide any meaningful identification of suspicious behaviour. Rather, a suitable KYC solution requires intelligent transaction monitoring of a client’s activities, with the appropriate analysis necessary to create a holistic view of financial behaviour.
An effective AML transaction monitoring solution is a powerful compliance tool for financial transaction analysis. It eliminates unnecessary manual work, minimises the likelihood of missing critical information, and assists organisations in maintaining a compliant profile.
