A Meet the Boss roundtable brought to you by IBM and Fenergo
2021 is pivotal for the digital adoption within regulatory compliance. As a new year begins, it’s imperative for financial institutions to be ahead of the curve, with their knowledge of both current and future trends in Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and Know Your Customer (KYC) practices; as they apply digital technologies to offer superior experience across the customer life cycle and fight financial crime. In the past, data had been siloed from customer behaviour, propagating fraud and inhibiting institutions from retaining a defined and dynamic depiction of a customer, and thereby limiting the ability to consistently provide the highest level of service.
In fact, recent international report found that global financial institution enforcement actions for AML, data privacy and MiFID rose by over 26% in 2020. US regulators continued to fine heavily, issuing almost twice as many fines in 2020 compared to the previous year. The value of fines issued in the US were also up in 2020 on the previous year, despite far less sanctions activity.
Despite being a year of new opportunity, 2021 holds its own set of challenges; The race to onboard customers faster yet securely, leveraging cutting edge analytics to improve risk ratings, reducing the cost of compliance, and the new competition from digital savy, challenger banks are amongst some of the hurdles that financial institutions need to conquer through the use of new technologies.
