Anti-Money Laundering Compliance

How CaseWare AML Compliance Works

CaseWare AML Compliance actively monitors 100% of financial transactions and customer information. When a non-compliant activity is detected, it triggers an alert that is sent to the appropriate stakeholder. Using configurable workflows, the solution assigns responsibility to investigate the alert and logs all activities to create an accurate and comprehensive audit trail of all actions taken.

Attachments, comments and indicators can be added to alerts to assist in root cause analysis or to create cases for investigations. When a regulatory report needs to be filed, the solution can quickly pre-populate the report with information from core systems and the solution’s data analytics platform. Reports can then be reviewed and validated by the compliance team, and sent electronically to regulators.
