Money Laundering Prevention and detection of Financing Terrorism

Challenges

 

Money laundering is the process through which the origin of funds generated by the exercise of some illegal or criminal activity is concealed. The aim of the operation, which is usually done at various levels, is to have the funds or assets obtained through illegal activities appear as the result of legitimate activities circulating without problem in the financial system.

Financial institutions, which are the main channel for money laundering, are obliged to carry out checks on the activities related to money laundering and the financing of terrorism, complying with existing regulations at national and international levels.

Prevention of Money Laundering presents the following challenges:

  • Detection of known operational laundering
  • Detection of unknown operational laundering (emerging)
  • Obtain a unified view of the customer (KYC – Know Your Customer)

 


Approach

 

For the Prevention of Money Laundering AIA Group uses different engines based on Artificial Intelligence Techniques, including  SIOs. It generates a profile of the different players and with the information received performs an elaborate analysis that detects potential money laundering operations based on a valuation context. This assessment is based on risk factors, operational changes, deviations with respect to groups, etc.
For the Prevention of Terrorism Financing, identification of people is achieved by using an intelligent search list result of the integration of various filtering agents, standardization of names, calculation of a note of confidence as the name and subsequent adjustment of the note obtained by name as context data (identification number, date of birth, country,).
