To attract and retain customers, financial institutions today must be able to provide customers with real-time, reliable information about their bank accounts and transactions, no matter where they are located. Anywhere access to actionable account information helps customers control their finances, fight fraud, and conduct their lives more efficiently.
Sanctions screening and fraud prevention solutions use real-time detection to prevent terrorist financing and financial crime; whereas anti-money laundering (AML) primarily follows an “observe and report” process. Such a process is all that is currently required by many regulators. Increasingly though, international compliance teams are choosing to stop transactions before they are executed – based on suspicions of money laundering activity. More and more, the industry has been asking itself if this approach of rejecting suspicious activity is a more effective strategy to prevent money laundering. This paper explores where and why AML real-time detection might make sense as a new paradigm for global financial institutions.

financial institutions have to help them re-invent their branch experience. Capabilities are
available today that were not imagined a decade ago. This is an exciting time for those
institutions that can look to the future and enhance their offerings.
While technology is driving change, it can also be a tremendous challenge for financial
institutions as they work to keep pace and even take advantage of the dramatic shift in
customer needs and expectations. Millennials, baby boomers, small businesses – all are
important market segments with very different wants and needs. Driven by technology,
the new demand is for a complete online presence, complemented by more flexibility in
personalized services, and specialized expertise available in every branch.

For decades, the financial services industry has endured constant change
and uncertainty, from the depths of a financial crisis to widespread
regulation overhauls. With the advent of more advanced cybersecurity
threats, the industry has responded with rapid digital transformation to
remain competitive while also pushing the envelope. Today, managing
and mitigating cyber-related risks not only draws government scrutiny, but
increased consumer scrutiny as well, with longstanding brand reputations
anchored to institutions’ ability to protect its most sensitive data. In a
recent survey of Americans, financial information was considered by
consumers to be their most valuable personal information, worth even
more than personal or family photos and videos. For consumers, failing
to protect their data is a grave violation of trust, to the point where 72%
would consider leaving their current financial institution if their sensitive
information was taken hostage by ransomware.1

However, the need to keep sensitive customer and business information secure and ensure compliance with government regulations can stymie those efforts.
