Technavio analysts highlight the following three factors that are contributing to the growth of the global anti-money laundering (AML) software market:
- Increased need for suspicious activity reporting (SAR)
- Increased need for automated transaction monitoring
- Increased need for risk management
Increased need for suspicious activity reporting (SAR)
Suspicious activity reporting has become an integral part of the fight against terrorist financing, money laundering, and other related financial crimes. SAR is an AML compliance process where reports containing data regarding any suspicious activity is sent to law enforcement authorities.
“Anti-money laundering software is used to detect and generate alerts for any suspicious activity based on set parameters. The software offers end-to-end coverage for detection, prioritizing, alerting, and reporting of suspicious activity,” says Ishmeet Kaur, a lead analyst at Technavio for enterprise application research.
Increased need for automated transaction monitoring
Large amounts of data are exchanged between various departments, and this information needs to be monitored thoroughly to avoid fraud related to online transactions. Manual monitoring is error-prone and time-consuming, which has resulted in the automation of transaction monitoring systems. Enterprises are deploying the AML software to detect and report any illegitimate activities.
AML software, such as SAS Anti-Money Laundering, uses analytics and out-of-the-box rules-based models to identify known risk scenarios, unknown money laundering risks, and hidden relationships between accounts, and ensure compliance to regulations. The software is customizable per user requirements, which makes it very attractive to end users.
Increased need for risk management
“The predictive models used in the AML software is used by banks to analyze historical data and match it with the outcomes of the alert, and be alert for non-obvious transaction patterns indicative of risk. This helps expose previously non-obvious risks and helps banks take necessary action,” says Ishmeet.
Advanced features of the AML software include automated investigation and efficient management of risk. AML software also incorporates the value of human intelligence into its risk management decisions, which makes it an extremely efficient and necessary tool in banking systems.
