Get Together: Partnering and Collaboration is a Model for Anti-HT Success*

By John Byrne | June 1, 2021
We in the financial crime prevention community are still assessing how the new Administration will address white collar crime and accompanying regulatory oversight. With the recent announcements about a new focus on tax evasion and enhanced reporting requirements for newer payment products such as virtual currency, it is clear that various forms of compliance and training will be essential and need to be enhanced. Added to these challenges is the wide policy support for private-public partnership and information sharing embedded in the recently enacted Anti-Money Laundering Act of 2020. This leads me to the proposition that no matter what or how much we address at the same time, let’s pause and recognize the ongoing examples of how the financial sector continues to be proactive and encourage those efforts so that their resources continue to be available to combat crimes such as human trafficking.

Client Monitoring: Reducing False Positives and Leveraging Straight Through Processing

By Iain Rodger | May 12, 2021
Despite the massive cost and reputational risks Financial Institutions (FIs) are exposed to, efficient fraud & AML systems largely remain elusive. Incumbent fraud systems generate a large volume of false positives in the process of detection; for example, a false positive can be an account or transaction mistakenly identified as criminal in origin. Typically, such fraud systems are heavily reliant on large numbers of human fraud case analysts to course correct. This can result in large costs to the FI as it allocates human resources to the problem.
