AML/CTF: Trends, Developments and Enforcement Actions to Guide Companies in 2021
This webinar provides a comprehensive discussion of the recent enforcement trends in Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and Counter Terrorism Financing (CTF) and their implications in 2021.
Detecting Financial Crime Using an Azure Advanced Analytics Platform and MLOps Approach
As gatekeepers of the financial system, banks play a crucial role in reporting possible instances of financial crime. At the same time, criminals continuously reinvent their approaches to hide their activities among dense transaction data. In this talk, we describe the challenges of detecting money laundering and outline why employing machine learning via MLOps is critically important to identify complex and ever-changing patterns.
In anti-money-laundering, machine learning answers to a dire need for vigilance and efficiency where previous-generation systems fall short. We will demonstrate how our open platform facilitates a gradual migration towards a model-driven landscape, using the example of transaction-monitoring to showcase applications of supervised and unsupervised learning, human explainability, and model monitoring. This environment enables us to drive change from the ground up in how the bank understands its clients to detect financial crime.

The rising value and frequency of Anti-Money Laundering (AML) fines has hit global headlines, with European and UK regulators sending a strong message on non-compliance and effective AML programmes. Even the largest global institutions in these markets, with major departments and resources dedicated to AML operations have fallen foul of the long arm of the law. If the giants of the banking and fintech scene cannot manage to avoid the fines and bad press, how can other institutions, such as national, savings, or high street banks and building societies remain compliant in this ever-changing regulatory landscape?
