AML and Financial Crimes

Artificial Intelligence and AML Optimization

Bates Group & Complidata Partner to Fight Financial Crime with A.I. and Industry Experience

Financial institutions are under increasing pressure to maximize the efficiencies of their organizations while addressing anti-money laundering (AML) process and procedures. Exacerbating that challenge is the need to meet increasing compliance requirements imposed by regulatory agencies with a workforce that has been disrupted by a global pandemic.

Bates Group's AML & Financial Crimes practice is proud to partner with Complidata, bringing our leading AML and financial crimes industry expertise together with Complidata’s Artificial Intelligence technology in a joint solution to assist financial institutions in tuning and optimizing their AML operations and regulatory compliance.

Our combined AML efforts target the following key areas: AML Transaction Monitoring, Trade Finance, KYC, Alert Risk Ranking, PEP & Sanctions screening, and AML Model Risk Management. We help financial institutions significantly increase efficiencies in their processes and procedures while reducing the percentages of false-positive alerts.
