6 ways Alessa increases the success of AML programs
Use real-time risk intelligence to know who you are doing business with
Monitor all transactions to intercept suspicious activities for investigation
Real-time and periodic screening to detect high-risk entities and activities
Automated creation, validation and e-filing of SARs, CTRs, STRs for various jurisdictions
Realistic assessment of risks based on entity profile and activity that is configurable
Workflows, case management that engages the entire organization in compliance
Deeper risk intelligence
Alessa includes APIs for integration with onboarding systems to verify identities and search sanctions, politically exposed persons (PEPs), OFAC, and proprietary lists in real time. Use this information to update the risks associated with an entity.
True picture of risks
Alessa leverages data from various sources to create a risk score. Risk factors, weights, scores, and aggregates are all configurable by the organization to match their risk appetite and tolerance. Periodic reviews are managed by workflows and scores are updated based on the entities’ activities.
Screen every activity
With Alessa, monitor every financial activity to get a holistic view of customer activities. The solution generates alerts for suspicious activity and sends them to the appropriate personnel for investigation and reporting.
Rules-based and advanced analytics
With regulatory enforcement and operations applying significant pressure on organizations, fraud is no longer an acceptable “cost of doing business”. Alessa uses both rules-based and advanced analytics, like anomaly detection and machine learning, to detect suspicious transactions that are out of character and exceed the risk tolerance of the organization.
Make investigations easier
Flagging potential issues is just half the solution. Alessa has a highly configurable workflow module that facilitates collaborative case management and investigation. Investigators can search the repository of alerts, cases, comments, etc., for related information to include in the current investigation.
Eliminate tedious reporting
Alessa offers automated regulatory reporting for currency transaction reports (CTRs), suspicious activity reports (SARs) and suspicious transaction reports (STRs). Reports are auto-populated, validated and electronically submitted to regulators, including FinCEN, FINTRAC and jurisdictions using goAML.
