SAS® Anti-Money Laundering

If you've watched the news or picked up a newspaper any time in the last few years, you know that illegal financial activity such as money laundering is on the rise. So, too, are the efforts of governments around the globe to squelch the growing threat. As a result, banks and other financial entities — and the executives who run them — are finding themselves under a regulatory microscope, accountable for any illegal financial activity that happens on their watch.

There's a lot at stake, too…for your organisation and for yourself: Stiff penalties and fines. Costly legal battles. Lengthy jail terms. Damaged reputation. And perhaps most costly of all, a decline in shareholder value.

The manual processes many organisations have used to detect money laundering activities just don't cut it any more. What you need is a sophisticated anti-money laundering solution that can take mountains of information from all areas of your business, manage and refine that information, and turn it into usable knowledge that will help you automatically identify and classify suspicious behavior. SAS Anti-Money Laundering is your answer.

    • Combine customer records from disparate sources and match them against lists of known or suspected criminals.
  • State-of-the-art alert engine
    • Easily monitor daily transactions for suspicious behavior.
    • Use multiple techniques-such as profiling and predictive modeling-to minimise false-positive alerts while decreasing the risk of true criminal activity going undetected.
  • Robust investigation interface
    • Efficiently manage and investigate alerts via a secure, Web-based interface.
    • Add comments, attach documents, send e-mails and file regulatory reports directly from the interface.
