Assist member firm clients in protecting themselves

From ‘Anti-Money Laundering’ and ‘Combating the Financing of Terrorism’ (AML/CFT) reviews to Data Analytics, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, our award winning AML & Trade Sanctions team brings clients tailored, pragmatic and cost-effective solutions.

Our work draws on an experienced team comprising former law enforcers, bank regulators, compliance officers and data analysts that has helped institutions resolve money laundering, sanctions and other financial crime issues locally and regionally.


How we can help:

  • Reduce third-party screening cost through KPMG’s KYC name screening solution (K3PID). K3PID utilizes artificial intelligence to automatically adjudicate potential hits for first level review, resulting in more than 50% cost savings for clients
  • Optimize effectiveness and efficiency of Transaction Monitoring Systems through Machine Learning. Tuning optimization results in fewer and better quality alerts
  • Utilize advanced Machine Learning techniques to automate sanctions alert review process by reducing false positive alerts.
  • Leverage market data and analytics to take a more holistic approach towards Trade Finance compliance reviews
  • Perform deep-dive analysis, including the use of Advanced Analytics, on internal AML and Sanctions compliance programs
