KYC solutions for Financial Services

Real-time AML screening & in-life monitoring to reduce risk

Financial services remains one of the most “at risk” industries in terms of money laundering. Criminal organisations have for many years sought to launder money generated through their enterprises into the global banking system. With increased digitalisation, that risk is now at its highest ever.

In order to compete with Fintech firms, banks are coming under increasing pressure to facilitate fast and efficient customer onboarding and to enable immediate and unhindered access to funds, all whilst ensuring they meet ever evolving compliance standards and regulations. Traditional banks also carry the burden of navigating complex internal data landscapes, which gives Fintech firms without data legacy issues an advantage in terms of flexibility.

Following the leak of the FinCEN Files in September 2020, the banking sector faces renewed scrutiny as to the role banks play in facilitating financial crime, and in particular money laundering. It is more important now than ever before for banks to be able to access wide sources of information on entities they deal with, as well as any connected persons or entities, so that risks can be properly identified and handled.

In terms of AML compliance, FATF guidance emphasises a risk-based approach. This requires banks to be able to evaluate the varying risk levels of different customers and determine which controls are necessary for each relevant risk profile.

RiskScreen is able to offer solutions that facilitate frictionless internal data economies in which data held on customers can be used to maximum effect in the management of financial crime risk. Our technologies can help you to achieve compliance with money laundering and financial crime regulations efficiently.
