World-class, independent, advisor for the end-to-end optimisation and remediation of compliance risk and RegTech systems and processes. Using applied intelligence, data science tools and the latest AI technologies we transform businesses globally through data-driven transformation, enabling greater risk management and mitigation.  ​

How can we help your business?

We help our clients to mitigate risk and deliver ongoing effectiveness and efficiency for their compliance risk models ensuring that their systems are fit for purpose in terms of regulation and output quality. 

We understand where things can go wrong in AML systems, helping our clients to uncover why these issues occur and providing robust solutions for how to resolve them, to optimise and enhance AML systems, models and processes, whilst minimising risk.​

With a sound understanding of the regulatory pressures and challenges facing the regulated industry, our financial crime risk management specialists help uncover faults in end-to-end compliance risk systems and remediate and optimise processes to mitigate risk.

 

We support our clients throughout the compliance process, to reduce false positives, drive effectiveness and improve efficiency, while ensuring we do not affect risk appetite.  We build insights into client and transaction activities and behaviours to ensure complete optimisation and remediation of compliance and risk programs, giving our clients more confidence in their systems.

 

We identify key areas for system, model and process improvements by building and continually optimising and remediating models for increased performance.  Our Applied Intelligence subject matter expertise enables our clients to understand the process and supports their communication with the regulator, mitigating this pressure.

We believe in data, but we’re thinkers first and data scientists second. As such we support your success by continually going beyond the analytics ensuring that our solutions can promote and sustain competitive advantage for you into the long term.

Services

Our experts, help support our clients across the breadth of end-to-end compliance risk processes and systems to ensure complete effectiveness and efficiency.  We provide tangible, auditable and repeatable solutions that are supported by grounded theory, applied intelligence and data science, which mitigate risk and assure our clients (and the regulator) that their systems are fit for intended purpose and are in a better state than before.

Advanced analytics and machine learning

Using our advanced Machine Learning  techniques and frontier data science and analytics technologies and expertise, our Advanced Analytics and Machine Learning Modelling services drive automation to the forefront of our clients solutions.  As experts in data driven transformation and RegTech implementation, we support our clients to meet and implement models within tight timeframes and benchmark against global standards to ensure best system performance. 

 

Using pattern recognition and behavioural analytics, our solutions identify trends and patterns in behaviours of customers that could lead to increased AML risk, ensuring we are able to bring increased due diligence and robustness to transaction monitoring and transaction screening alert prioritisation, sanctions and PEP screening, and customer risk profiling models.

Model Validation and tuning

Our risk-based approach to Model Validation and Tuning ensures our clients fully understand the risks associated with their systems and meet their desired risk appetite or tolerance, to work towards a position of increased effectiveness and efficiency.  We quantitively challenge model design to identify and reduce noise and false positive alerts, without affecting true matches.

 

From tuning to working towards an independent model validation, we challenge model fitness for intended purpose with the same due diligence as credit risk and market risk models, to ensure our clients are left with solutions and systems that are in a better position to when they started. Implementing our synthetic data approach allows our clients to decrease time and resource, while still mitigating risk. These solutions can be applied to a variety of end-to-end AML and CTF models and by providing an auditable risk assessment report outlining our observations and recommendations, our clients have  confidence in our solutions to drive transformation and assure the regulator.

BEYONDGovernance and applied intelligence

The application of Applied Intelligence enables our clients to be supported across their transformation journey, taking a methodical, consulting approach to our advisory solutions.  Our Subject Matter Experts are equipped with the latest regulatory and compliance knowledge and keep abreast of the latest changes in governing requirements to ensure our solutions not only meet the needs of our clients, but meet the expectations of regulators and governing bodies across international jurisdictions.

 

We have the expertise in place to conduct procedures assessments and gap analysis to identify inefficiencies against relevant regulation and industry best practise across your AML and compliance programme, including but not limited to data quality, governance and model risk management. We understand the impact of regulatory pressure, and our independently generated reports can therefore be used in your regulatory communications.

Delivering Results

We support our clients wherever they are in their journey to become data-driven, from identifying the art of the possible to developing automated machine learning solutions and their ongoing support. Our Applied Intelligence services deliver tangible outcomes; reducing compliance and financial crime risk and delivering operational robustness.

Our approach starts with understanding areas of inefficiency and ineffectiveness across your end-to-end CTF systems and processes.  We identify opportunities for optimisation and remediation through the implementation of data-driven transformation.

Optimisation: Tuning to improve effectiveness and efficiency, reduce noise and increase return on investment.

Intelligent Rule Discovery

In-depth behavioural analysis of data sets and systems, builds insights into drivers and predictors of client and transaction activities and patterns of behaviour.

Solution Design & Development

Design and development of new profiling and predictive solutions improves efficiency and effectiveness across existing AML processes.

Solution Validation

Testing of new solutions over synthetic and historical data sources validates the effectiveness and efficiency of enhancements and justifies optimisation solutions. 

Optimisation Advisory
