Presentation Description:

Money service businesses (MSBs) and FinTechs are under increasing pressure from regulators to comply with anti-money laundering (AML) laws, while they must also continuously adapt in order to detect fraud and criminal activity. This session examines how advanced analytics like anomaly detection, link analysis and predictive analytics can help non-traditional financial organizations identify suspicious behaviors that should be investigated and reported. The presentation will also examine the role technology plays in engaging an entire organization in a culture of compliance, and will discuss case studies that demonstrate how an effective AML program is a competitive advantage.
