Banks are particularly affected by money-laundering risks due to their product portfolio. Compliance departments often struggle with the challenge to protect their banks against misuse and to comply with the current statutory requirements (EU money-laundering directive, FATF recommendations).
FICO TONBELLER provides banks with a solution to efficiently counter money-laundering risks and events at all times and stages. Money-laundering risks are identified, classified, assigned to measures, and implemented for the check. Specific modules perform initial and continual risk classification of new and existing customers and provide due diligence tasks in the research system. The money-laundering alerts generated by this system are based on customer data and custom settings specified by the user according to the risk. Case management functionality supports the decision process from invalidating a suspicion to filing a suspicion activities report (SAR). Transactions are checked for relevance to international terrorism and may be stopped, whereas management cockpits enable governance, i.e. the company's targeted money-laundering control based on the classified risks.
