Wayne, PA (July 10, 2018) – QuantaVerse, the first in the market with artificial intelligence (AI) solutions purpose-built for identifying financial crimes, helps financial institutions file timely and accurate suspicious activity reports (SARs) that match FinCEN’s recently revamped SAR filing format in the BSA E-Filing System. The QuantaVerse Financial Crime Investigation Report (FCIR) automatically compiles information relevant for filing SARs including content related to FinCEN’s newly recommended fields and categories such as geographic targeting orders, IP address date/timestamping, and new/modified subtype selections associated with structuring, fraud, money laundering, gaming, identification/documentation, securities and mortgage fraud.
A critical output of the company’s Alert Investigator and False Negative Identification and Investigator solutions, the QuantaVerse FCIR details serious anomalous transactions including information on the transacting parties, transactional relationships, negative news surrounding entities, and money laundering and terrorism financing typologies. The QuantaVerse FCIR includes risk scores and all supporting documentation necessary for the case to be efficiently analyzed by an AML investigator and all that is required for a SAR to be created.
“We anticipate that this will reduce by up to 70 percent the time that investigators spend gathering critical facts and summarizing their research to support SAR filings. Our comprehensive Financial Crime Investigation Report helps financial institutions’ investigative teams automate data-gathering activities and apply human resources to things they are uniquely qualified for such as intuition and logic,” explained David McLaughlin, CEO and Founder of QuantaVerse. “With our Financial Crime Investigation Report, we are elevating the work of investigators to its highest and best use while radically increasing efficiency.”
The QuantaVerse FCIR meets regulatory and internal audit requirements for properly documenting, explaining and detailing the activity investigated. It contains sections for recommended action, identified risk, subject(s) identification, dates of identified activity, account number(s), number of transactions, amounts, transaction details including dates, negative news, and an investigative narrative that conforms to regulatory and internal audit requirements as appropriate for SARs and Suspicious Transaction Reports (STRs).
In the event that the QuantaVerse AI Solution determines that additional investigation and verification by a level-three or level-four investigator is necessary, the FCIR will state that “further investigation is recommended.” If an alert does not constitute suspicious activity (i.e., it’s a false positive), the report will indicate “no further investigation recommended.”
“Our customers appreciate having AI-derived insights, risk scores and supporting evidence on suspicious transactions served up to them in a clear and logical report,” said McLaughlin.
QuantaVerse is the emerging leader in data science-powered risk reduction solutions, purpose-built for identifying financial crimes. Utilizing proprietary data science algorithms including artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning and big data technologies, QuantaVerse integrates and filters institutional data and related external data – including public Internet data, unstructured deep web data, as well as government and commercial datasets – to significantly improve AML, KYC and BSA compliance and prevent money laundering and the crimes it supports.

While not mandating that firms invest in technology to automate financial crime investigations, regulators are certainly encouraging it. They are noticing that advanced BSA/AML teams are using robotic process automation (RPA) bots to gather data for investigations. They are aware that those same firms are using machine learning to analyze huge data sets, identify patterns, and pinpoint where exceptions or anomalies exist.
How Artificial Intelligence Can Help Financial Institutions Put an End to Cartel’s Illegal Border Business Bonanza
Current estimates suggest that Latin American cartels who facilitate illegal U.S. border crossings net $400 million each month. These, and related windfalls, must be laundered through the financial system to facilitate other cartel business and fund the lavish lifestyles of the cartel kingpins and their senior management.
Automating High-Risk Entity Reviews to Reduce Errors, Improve Efficiencies, and Ensure CDD Compliance
Federal bank regulatory agencies require that financial institutions regularly review and segment all their customers based on risk. While the Customer Due Diligence (CDD) Rule, which amended BSA regulations in 2018, does not stipulate how often reviews should be...
