kdprevent Risk Calculation
Avoiding negative audit remarks and fines
The time taken to process AML alerts can be quite problematic for financial institutions and corporates having to deal with compliance issues.
AML rules were invented to fight ML and are strongly supported by country regulators. Giving more attention to day-to-day business with admittedly more value-added tasks may make sense for a front user but, in the long run, audit remarks and/or fines negatively impact the reputation and the financial balance of a bank.
A widespread use case
Quoting from a bank manager...
In our banks, the client attaché is the one closest to our clients and who knows their activities best. We consider him as the front user of all customer related information.
The front user is usually the recipient of alerts generated by our AML system. Upon receiving the alert, he investigates the related activity and explains the root cause of the alert.
Though, in the facts, our front users prioritise tasks other than processing the AML alerts. This would not be an issue if not for auditors and country regulators who do not take lightly the alert-processing delays. Instead of meeting the single-day processing expectation from regulators, we happen to take several more days if not more to investigate and process the alerts. Needless to say, this situation renders us vulnerable to audit remarks in the best-case scenario and at worst we have to pay considerable fines.
Risk calculation is key
Risk calculation is the most appropriate means to mitigate such vulnerabilities. Inetum’s AML solution includes a risk calculator which takes processing time into consideration and therefore provides a rolling assessment of risks. The more time the emitted alert remains open, the higher is the revised risk level.
