Time?*

By John Byrne | August 28, 2019
4th Quarter of 2019—What will it take for useful action? As we approach the Labor Day weekend and the unofficial end to summer, the 2019 calendar turns to last opportunities for any successes that can be tied to this year. For the AML community, the standard calendar year doesn’t impact our work but it can dictate things such as legislation, regulation or sometimes policy. AML reform, for example, can still occur in 2020 since we are currently in the beginning of a two-year congressional session. Also, if there is a change in Administrations after the presidential election, some agency chairs will change, but not until early 2021, which could also include a shift in agency leadership and potential thematic or priority shifts.

Data Integrity (Model Validation)

By Tim White | July 25, 2019
It’s all about the data Over the last 15 to 20 years, automated transaction monitoring systems have progressed from the realm of the megabanks, to AML monitoring systems at all but the smallest institutions. They are a key resource for your institution’s AML/Anti-Fraud/Sanctions compliance program.  As these systems have progressed, improved and become more commonplace, one element has remained unchanged; the key to their effectiveness is the quality and the completeness of the data they receive and the utilization of this data by the monitoring system. In making this analysis, start by looking at what information your AML system can utilize to maximize its detection and reporting capabilities; it’s all about the data.
