1. Financial Deal Management (June 27th)

Across financial institutions worldwide, control room officers are challenged with deal management issues on a daily basis. Deal management is one of their most cumbersome risk management tasks in fraud prevention. Control room officer oversight must span multiple departments and requires close scrutiny of subsequent list and employee status updates.

New strategies can help control room officers boost risk management efficiency and fraud prevention by streamlining the deal management process across the full deal lifecycle. This webinar will show how some institutions are deploying custom Deal Management Portals to perform advanced deal management oversight by incorporating workflows, conflict-of-interest checks, list management, reporting and controls. Control room officers report that this portal quickly becomes self-funding by saving time, resources, and enhancing overall performance in risk management and fraud prevention.

This webinar shares new insights and strategies in deal management, including:   

  • Chaotic current state of deal management
  • Deal management challenges
  • Deal Management Portal
  • From inception to conclusion
  • Use case of DMS application and benefits
  • Create a self-funding project that pays real benefits

4. AML Transaction Monitoring Tuning (Sep 5th)

Anti-money-laundering operations tend to be cumbersome and costly for most financial institutions. Poorly-defined thresholds in AML transaction monitoring negatively impact financial institutions in two critical functions – operations and compliance, while increasing both expense and risk.

In operations, high volumes of false positive alerts require analysts to dedicate valuable time investigating useless alerts, wasting resources, delaying critical regulatory filings and significantly increasing operational costs. The absence of risk-focused thresholds jeopardizes AML compliance and poses a higher monitoring risk when potential money laundering patterns go undetected.

Why should you attend?

This webinar will explain how and why tuning AML transaction monitoring can significantly streamline operations and lower overhead.  Also, you will learn how to:

  • Establish appropriate thresholds that can leverage advanced analytics techniques to improve rules productivity
  • Leverage automation techniques in alert investigations can reduce the effort spent on false positives and provide more time for investigations to focus on truly suspicious activities

Topics covered:

  • Regulatory implications and their impact on throughput
  • Managing AML risks and emerging typologies
  • Developing targeted detection scenarios
  • Customer segmentation/population groups
  • How and why it’s important to understand “normal” and “outliers”
  • How automation can improve operations and lower overhead
