Financial Crime Risk

Identifying and Reducing the Risk of Financial Crime

Financial institutions offer more rapid and convenient ways to access money than ever, and are increasingly offering a variety of complex new products and services that allow for the electronic transfer of large sums. One inevitable consequence is an increase in both the frequency and complexity of fraud and money-laundering schemes.

As a result, institutions must work energetically and effectively to implement and strengthen programs related to financial crimes – responding to three primary concerns:

  • Regulatory compliance pressures aimed at enforcing financial crime laws, regulations, and global economic sanctions
  • Direct financial losses through fines, sanctions, remediation efforts, and the increasing cost of compliance
  • Reputational risk, which adversely can affect customer relationships and future growth strategies
