Digital Finance meets Digital Compliance

As finance continues to proliferate digitally, so should the governance and compliance systems surrounding it. Regulation has a tendency to follow the trend rather than set it, and this has certainly been the case for many emerging digital financial sectors such as Fintech and Apps, Digital Currency Exchanges and Neobanks. bronID is an end to end AML/CTF online compliance toolkit built to help emerging digital financial sectors remain compliant with evolving regulation.

bronID provides online, digitally interoperable AML/CTF tools that help financial services and compliance officers navigate the complexities of anti-money laundering and counter-terrorism financing (AML/CTF) regulation globally.

With more regulatory changes aimed at the digital economy coming into force, it is essential your data systems are up to date to respond to these changes and achieve industry best-practice.

Performing AML/CTF Obligations Digitally

In a McKinsey report, four key initiatives are outlined as necessary upgrades to existing AML/CTF compliance systems in order to keep up with the fight against financial crime. These initiatives are within the fields of analytics and information technology with a focus on digital transformation.

  1. Develop a truly end-to-end view of an optimised, tech-enabled KYC and AML process, starting with new standards for customer-data intake to customer identification to risk-based due diligence to monitoring.
  2. Define a strategy for data quality and aggregation, including linking KYC and AML data closer together.
  3. Fold simple analytical approaches like micro-segmentation into current systems and model validation processes.
  4. Implement a set of metrics and practices to measure the effectiveness of the KYC/AML processes and assess the impact of operational and system improvements.
