Financial Crime & Compliance Thought Leadership
Financial crime is big business. Digital transactions, including cryptocurrency, have enabled criminals to become more sophisticated with money laundering and proceeds of crime trafficking. Sanctions screening, risk profiling, and PEP identification is becoming more difficult for financial compliance teams. Financial institutions face significant pressure to be compliant with increasing AML regulations or risk hefty fines and brand reputation damage. This leads to the increasing cost of financial crime compliance. Our client uses market insights to generate thought leadership that informs firms on the trends, costs and solutions related to financial crime compliance risks.
A synthesis of in-depth interviews with financial crime compliance decision makers and market discovery was used to generate a holistic view of the financial crime and compliance landscape. Our focus was to identify the cost of financial crime to regulated institutions, the internal and external challenges faced by compliance teams, the most up-to-date risks facing financial firms and the best practice approaches to detecting and mitigating financial crime, including with blockchain and financial messaging systems.
We quantifiably demonstrated that financial institutions which follow best-practice financial crime compliance approaches can lower the risk and costs to their organization. The client leveraged study findings to develop various types of marketing assets for social media, news outlets, webinars, events and more – enhancing our client’s position as a thought leader in this space.
