Lombard selects SAS technology and Consortix expertise for AML
Lombard International Assurance remains a principal player in Anti-Money Laundering (AML) by opting for a solution built on SAS technology deployed with the expertise of Consortix
Lombard International Assurance, European leader in wealth management solutions based on unit-linked life insurance, is constantly looking for methods to detect and provide protection against fraud and money laundering. As such, the company has recently opted for the entire AML / CDD platform (Anti-Money Laundering & Customer Due Diligence) by SAS, leader in analytics, and entrusted its configuration to Consortix, one of the leading consultancy firms in the field of financial crime in Europe.
Lombard International Assurance has been persuaded by the combined solution of SAS and Consortix, particularly due to the robustness of the fully integrated platform, offering a wide range of functionalities, including the quality of detection and its ability to adapt to the constantly evolving modus operandi of fraudsters. Consortix’s know-how enriches the SAS technology.
Recognized worldwide as a must-have platform, the AML / CDD solution by SAS has been installed by more than 200 financial institutions. Lombard International Assurance emphasizes the use of the most reliable technologies in its activities, to comply with AML and CDD regulations.
Implementation and rapid detection
As the official partner of SAS since 2016, Consortix has successfully implemented more than 20 AML / CDD installations in Europe and North America. From a business perspective, Consortix has completed the SAS platform to be in line with the latest directives, in order to meet the FATF (Financial Action Task Force) expectations.
Consortix has recently implemented the SAS platform in life insurance and wealth management in France, with several customers such as Groupe Pasteur Mutualité, Klésia, Unéo, MGP, and others.
