BuckleySandler FinCrimes Webinar: Transaction Monitoring for Financial Crimes

  • October 23, 2014

As financial institutions begin to migrate compliance processes from risk specific silos such as money laundering, sanctions, corruption, and fraud into a more comprehensive financial crimes structure, addressing the impact this will have on transaction monitoring programs is an institutional imperative if the risk mitigation and SAR reporting processes are to function optimally. Understanding the challenges of disparate data source integration, the inherent complexity of transaction monitoring models and the analytics required to maximize investigative utility is critical to success.

Please join BuckleySandler and invited panelists for a discussion of the following topics:

  • How to organize a financial crimes transaction monitoring function.
  • Considerations in establishing rule sets appropriate to the task as well as the ongoing tuning of these control settings.  
  • Incorporating the lessons from transaction monitoring models into the risk assessment process.
  • Employing data analytics to triage output and improve system accuracy.
  • Regulatory expectations regarding system implementation and model validation.

Panelists:

  • Jim Arndts, Capital Bank
  • Georges Korsum, EY
  • Scott Nathan, BankUnited
