Anti-Money Laundering

The Anti-Money Laundering (AML)/ Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) compliance landscape is ever-expanding and changing. As new and evolving regulations and increased regulatory scrutiny are increasing compliance pressures on financial institutions, the financial and reputational impact of non-compliance emphasizes the need for companies to increase visibility over their risks.

Business leaders must move their organizations forward and continue to innovate while mitigating risk in the midst of this complex and evolving AML compliance environment. CrossCountry’s specialized team helps clients meet the challenge of striking the right balance between risk mitigation and risk taking.

Navigating AML Regulations Through Models

The Anti-Money Laundering (AML)/ Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) Compliance landscape is becoming increasingly reliant on quantitative models . The trend across all aspects of AML risk management is toward greater analysis and statistical validation of models and processes.

Today’s AML model landscape includes transaction monitoring (TM) models which detect suspicious activity within cashflows, as well as watchlist monitoring models to screen against sanctions lists (e.g., politically exposed persons [PEP]; the Office of Foreign Assets Control [OFAC] list).
