With constant changes in regulatory expectations and an increase in global financial crimes, financial institutions are placing a high priority on AML software and its ability to accurately identify red flags and suspicious activity. Furthermore, examiners are continuing to scrutinize the effectiveness of transaction monitoring systems, necessitating continuous system updates.

Failure of tuning software to recognize suspicious transactions may leave your institution vulnerable to criminal activity and regulatory enforcement. To achieve the full potential of a system’s outputs, AML departments must have a dedicated team that is constantly tuning risk parameters to address new customer profiles and the latest compliance rules.

The second installment of this software implementation series teaches you to identify thresholds and rules that need to be adjusted and how to effectively calibrate your AML software so that it is synchronized with your institution’s core system.
