Imagine having a financial crime insights application
that has the potential to give you complete oversight, and specific insights into, your firm’s financial crime risks and control environment effectiveness on an ongoing basis.
Firms are facing significant challenges in getting accurate insights into their financial crime risk profile and control environment effectiveness. This is driven in part by multiple systems and processes being in place to manage the risk.
Compounding those challenges, senior management reporting is often created through MS Excel further increasing the risk of data manipulation errors and therefore impacting the ability to effectively manage risk.
In the industry we see many MLROs enduring ineffective oversight rather than prioritising real-time insights, trend analysis and projections.
Beyond MI have developed a financial crime focused automated data aggregation and reporting / insights tool that allows users to define those measures where periodic and real-time insight is required. We work with data owners to establish automated data feeds. The tool is designed to provide the Board, ExCo, and MLRO with targeted risk and control insights. That includes:
All required insights
Per policy, procedure and risk assessment content
Across all regions/ branches
Available on one interactive dashboard
Hosted in-house or on cloud
We can provide periodic and real-time insights into client exposures, policy and regulatory breaches, SAR disclosures, backlogs of periodic reviews and trigger event reviews, client decline rates & reasons, financial crime offboarding rates and reasons, QC and QA on control environment processes, to name a few.
Our dashboard is fully configurable to each firm’s needs and sources data via APIs for real-time and periodic insights.
Below is an example proforma that Beyond MI created for a FinTech recently (dummy data presented). Data from four different data sources are defined, structured and mapped onto one oversight screen allowing the user to gain real-time insights into this AML risks subset.
Automated data feeds from source systems that provide real-time and periodic insights directly into a risk dashboard is a key enabler for every risk management framework. Critically, we significantly reduce the manual effort of aggregating data for management reporting.
Beyond MI see first-hand the data aggregation challenges that exist to provide accurate risk management insights to senior management.
The team have worked with MLROs and Chief Compliance Officers over the past seven years to provide targeted risk management insights.
Risk management reporting is underpinned by data provenance and ownership that provides senior management with assurance of the completeness and accuracy of their firm’s risk management efforts.
As a specialist consultancy, we focus on existing challenges within the industry and provide bespoke solutions for effective risk management oversight.
We work hard to maintain our clean sheet of audit and skilled person findings on all our deliverables.
