Jurisdiction Derivation, Powered by AI, Helps Financial Institutions Reduce Risk and Their Number of AML Investigations
Financial institutions are held accountable by regulators to ensure they are taking a risk-based approach in their AML/BSA compliance operations. As such, institutions must consider AML risk based on certain types of customers and transactions, including risky jurisdictions impacted by political or economic unrest.
The AI-powered QuantaVerse Automated Volume and Value (V&V) Transaction Analysis solution provides risk managers with better insights into variances in account activity that might indicate risks of financial crimes, or that suggest an account is being used for something other than its stated purpose. Analysis of this nature is a growing regulatory burden driven by the expectation that FIs understand the risk profile of clients as well as their clients’ clients.
