AML RightSource (“AMLRS”), the leading provider of Anti-Money Laundering (“AML”), Know Your Customer (“KYC”), and Bank Secrecy Act (“BSA”) compliance solutions, has added a new capability to its QuantaVerse Financial Crime Platform. The new Risk Segment Override (RSO) capability allows an investigator to override QuantaVerse’s risk segmentation if they deemed it warranted after reviewing a case. The overrides will persist until the QuantaVerse Platform alters the entity’s risk profile based on new information which is immediately presented for review.
Experienced AML investigators have training, instinct, and intuition that surpass what even the most advanced AML systems can effectively analyze. For example, during customer onboarding, a TMS alert investigation, or as part of a high-risk entity review, an investigator will have discovered why a company executive is negatively impacting the risk segmentation of an associated entity. If a compliance team determines that this connection is not a valid risk, the Risk Segment Override capability ensures that this issue will no longer inflate an entity’s risk score thus keeping the AML compliance team from wasting precious time continuously reevaluating cases triggered by this non-issue.
However, the QuantaVerse Platform will reverse a risk override due to any negative change of financial crime observables. A report of new adverse media; the discovery of evolving money laundering typologies; or even a change in the volume or value of transactions to a risky jurisdiction could automatically reverse the override and notify the AML compliance team that a new risk indicator should be evaluated.
“AML compliance teams are notoriously overburdened. Recent staffing shortages have further compounded their ability to keep up with increasing regulatory demands and bank growth,” explains David McLaughlin, Executive Vice President, Technology Sales at AML RightSource. “By reducing the amount of time spent re-examining the same issues and alerts, we’re freeing up teams to attend to the things that most require their attention and valuable time. RSO is a great example of how we can create efficiencies for compliance teams while ensuring that legitimate risk is being identified.”
The QuantaVerse Platform is built specifically for the financial services industry. The QuantaVerse Platform’s AML compliance solutions have been shown to improve the effectiveness of existing AML systems while creating significant efficiencies for investigative teams.
