Your Compliance Program Shouldn’t Stop You from Growing
Financial technology has seen explosive growth over the past few years, effectively changing the way people access financial services. While the industry continues to innovate and disrupt, regulators still expect organizations to implement sound anti-money laundering (AML) compliance programs or face additional scrutiny, reputational damage, and fines. For example, many FinTech or payments companies are subject to strict AML regulations if they are registered as a money service business (MSB) within the jurisdictions they operate.
Money Service Businesses are Targets for Money Laundering
Money services businesses (MSBs) serve a critical role in the financial world by providing access to money transfer services. The ease, efficiency, and cost effective access to these services without having to open an account or experience long waiting periods attracts millions of customers each year.
Because customers do not have to go through a formal onboarding process or typically collect Know Your Customer (KYC) data to use MSBs, customers are largely anonymous. As such, MSBs are targets for money laundering, terrorist financing, and other suspicious activity.
Actimize for MSBs
With increased regulatory pressure, scrutiny, and expectations, MSBs need a solution that offers end-to-end, consistent coverage from an experienced vendor. Actimize offers a proven suite of anti-money laundering solutions to help MSBs establish and enforce compliant processes and procedures, detect suspicious activity, and receive consistent coverage. Actimize’s deep experience, strong relationships with financial intuitions and regulators, and consultative expertise ensure that MSBs can implement risk-based procedures cost-effectively.
Gain an Advantage Over Your Competitors
The industry is evolving at a rapid rate with no signs of slowing down. Financial technology organizations and MSBs that put compliance first gain an advantage over their competitors, and are more likely to come out on top in the race to gain users and market share. Most importantly, sound compliance programs and strategies deter negative news and fines that cause reputational damage and a loss of consumer confidence.
