THE LEADER'S DEBATE: Next generation operational risk management

  • Regulation and innovation in a new age firm

    • If you were a first line of defense business owner, how would you use operational risk information to add value to your business?

ROUNDTABLE: The new era in financial crime investigation- from transaction to entity risk

In battling financial crime and risk, monitoring and detection is only half the battle. Too often, Financial Services Organizations (FSOs) find themselves mired in investigations that are narrowly focused on single alerts or cases without gaining a holistic view of entity risk. What's more, these investigations take way too much time and require unending growth in person-power.
Applying machine learning and Robotics Process Automation (RPA) to financial crime investigations and operations moves Financial Institutions into a new era, enabling analytics-driven case management, automated evidence gathering and entity risk visualization, and dynamic customer self-service resolution.
In this roundtable,financial crime experts discuss:

  • Challenges in financial crime investigations and risk management
  • Applications of machine learning and RPA in financial crime investigations and operations
  • Moving an visual insights and entity-based risk
