Anti-Money-Laundering: Connecting Accounts and Private Persons
Now that AML involves the fight against tax fraud, banks must be able to adopt a look-through approach to companies, at the level of the single transaction.
Indeed, FINMA (the Swiss regulatory body of banks and the financial industry), recently stated in a high-profile case, that:
To combat money laundering effectively, every concerned department within the bank/financial institution must be able to see all the client’s relationships instantly and automatically.
Unfortunately, the Core Banking Systems have not been designed for that function. It is difficult even with modern anti-AML software, to achieve that result.
Are client data consistent?
The problem is identifying what those relationhips between account and persons are, and to pull together the data of the bank into a consistent data set.
There are many obstacles in such a project, and projects can slow down and even fail.
