  • When: November 6, 2018
  • Time: 2:00 – 3:00 PM ET
  • Level: All

In a world where regulatory and operational demands on AML programs and resources continues to grow year on year, we, as an industry, have to focus on new approaches and solutions to cost effectively managing AML risk.

The use of Robotics to create more efficient, accurate and actionable insights is an effective way to optimize the management of AML risk both in terms on managing costs and enhancing the AML program. Today, technology companies speak about robotics as though it is a panacea that will solve all our problems. We have to balance the expectations of these technological advances and use them appropriately to manage risk and optimize operations.

Join us to discuss how our clients are leveraging robotics for transaction monitoring, customer due diligence, sanction screening investigations and more.
