In the face of evolving regulation, increasing transactional volumes and new sanctions regimes, our solutions help clients meet their obligations with increased quality and at reduced cost.
The pressures of financial crime are not new, but they are growing. The current challenge for banks is a combination of ever increasing and evolving regulations and legislation. These create a complex regulatory environment to operate in and comply with. Getting compliance wrong is not an option.
Existing sanctions screening systems often result in the production of large volumes of false positive alerts, often in excess of 95%. Traditional tuning techniques, applied to sanctions screening systems, require constant refresh due the increasing number of payments, customers, and the introduction of new sanctions regimes and frequent changes to existing lists. The limitations of poor systems tuning and regulatory change have resulted in alert spikes and backlogs in many institutions.
Current alert review processes frequently rely on extensive teams of personnel, often spread over disparate geographical locations. Delays in processing transactions, due to human processing times, can impact on customer experience, which is increasingly at the forefront of Financial Institutions strategic agendas.
In the face of increasing and evolving regulation, increasing transactional volumes, and the introduction of new sanctions regimes, KPMG has developed solutions that target both systems optimization and alert review processes. The goal is an increase in quality of screening systems performance and faster, more accurate and consistent alert review, helping Financial Institutions to meet their sanctions obligations more efficiently.
KPMG’s Sanctions screening testing platform enables clients to test the effectiveness of their customer and/or payments screening systems.
