Finance Firms Step Up Investments in AI Anti-Money Laundering Monitoring


Reykjavik, Iceland -- (SBWire) -- 09/30/2022 --Artificial Intelligence (AI) has a lot to offer when it comes to anti-money laundering monitoring. This advanced technology has the potential to make AML measures even more effective and to enhance investments in anti-money laundering monitoring. That's why so many businesses are now planning to increase the volume of investment in AI for this purpose. In fact, one recent survey found that 57% have either deployed AI in anti-money laundering monitoring processes or are planning to do so in the near future. And a third of finance firms are accelerating their use of AI in order to make existing measures more effective. These are vital steps for any business in the finance industry to take, especially as the UN estimates that $2 trillion in tainted money is moved illegally on a global level every year.

Money laundering is a crime that facilitates other crimes and finance firms are often used by criminals to hide cash that is related to organised crime. It has taken some time for the finance industry - regulators and firms - to get to grips with the opportunities that technology presents for better anti-money laundering monitoring. But today there is a clear and widespread understanding that tools such as AI can make a huge difference to the exposure that individual finance firms have. 40% of those who are planning to increase investment in AI want to use it for improving the quality of investigations and regulatory filings while 38% cite the motivation as reducing false positives and the operational costs that can result from them.

Lucinity is ahead of the game when it comes to AI integration. The Lucinity platform has been developed on the basis of Human AI, which brings together some of the optimum aspects of artificial intelligence with the unique abilities of humans. Together, these provide a way forward that optimises measures to help improve compliance risk monitoring and make preventative steps easier to implement. Ease of implementation has been a big part of the way that Lucinity software has been developed - the easier it is for businesses to upgrade anti-money laundering monitoring and measures, the simpler it will be to stop illegal activity, going forward. Faster tech solutions are an essential part of progress in this climate where there is very little margin for error, especially for financial firms. Overall, Lucinity is committed to Make Money Good and empowering organisations through innovative technology to minimise the impact that money laundering can have on a business on global level.

Today, it is not just a very effective form of anti-money laundering monitoring and compliance but can also help businesses achieve productivity improvements. This is part of the ethos of Lucnity that AML compliance shouldn't be hard but simple to integrate and use. It's been this approach that has allowed the firm to take its business global - today it has offices in Brussels, New York, London and Reykjavik. Also key has been the commitment to key values that matter, including shared intelligence, human respect, empathy and understanding and leveraging a quiet strength to empower businesses against financial crime.
