Generating Banking Impact
Rising regulatory scrutiny of Anti-Money Laundering (AML) programs and increasing penalties for non-compliance have challenged financial institutions with the need to strengthen their Customer Due Diligence (CDD) processes. In parallel, the financial crisis and its aftermath have forced financial institutions to significantly reduce operating expenditures, limiting the funds available for risk mitigation and compliance-related activities, including Know Your Customer (KYC) data management and process improvements and KYC remediation. With more than 30 clients in the Banking and Financial Services industry, Genpact helps organizations streamline the AML process, design, build, and run intelligent operations.
Our diverse and experienced workforce of AML consulting and risk professionals supports clients worldwide in maintaining strong compliance standards with the following solutions:
- AML process standardization for zero defects and higher compliance;
- Global template of AML processes based on US, FATF, and EU guidelines; and,
- Single view of customers, applications, and reference data 30–40% cost advantage over traditional alternatives.
Genpact AML services encompass the following:
Genpact provides end-to-end KYC remediation, including identification, verification, and sourcing of documents and PEP screening.
