AML Compliance with robust Transaction Monitoring Rules

AML Compliance with robust Transaction Monitoring Rules

The Transaction Monitoring program is one of the critical aspects of a practical AML Compliance framework, focused on continuous review of the financial transactions and the customer’s profile to identify any suspicious or unusual activities or customer behaviour. To enhance the efficiency of the transaction monitoring program, it is essential that the regulated organization design and implement the relevant monitoring rules aligned with the organization’s overall ML/FT business risk.

Transaction monitoring is essential to ensure that the transactions the customers are executing are normal and reasonable to the customer’s profile and the nature of business activities they are involved in, including the legitimacy of the transactions.

Monitoring rules must be defined considering the regulated organization’s customer base, the jurisdictions in which it operates, and its customers are hailing from, the peculiarities of the transactions, etc.
