The complex dynamics of technology and regulatory evolution have placed unprecedented demands on financial institutions' anti-money laundering (AML) and Know Your Customer (KYC) technology and operations. As a result, spending in AML-KYC has exploded in the last decade. At the same time, firms are investing in AI, robotics, and other next generation technology to improve efficiency and reign in outsized operational costs.

This Celent premium event will explore the state of play in AML software; present Celent's latest analysis of AML-KYC spending levels; and explore next-generation analytic techniques for AML-KYC use cases. Participants will receive a reprint of Celent's recent report, IT and Operational Spending in AML-KYC: A Global Perspective.

The event features two sessions tailored to meet the needs of financial institutions and technology vendors respectively.

This digital event is free and includes a reprint of Celent's recent report, IT and Operational Spending in AML-KYC: A Global Perspective. To register, please contact Andrew Renzella at

Voice of the Customer: AML-KYC Software from the User's Perspective

Neil Katkov, Head, Risk and Compliance

What are the key technology trends in today’s AML software solutions? How do FI users feel about their AML systems and the support and services provided by vendors? This session examines the state of AML software through an aggregated analysis of AML solutions culled from Celent vendor research as well as voice of the customer data gleaned from a proprietary Celent survey of financial institutions using AML software.

Benchmarking IT and Operational Spending for AML-KYC

Neil Katkov, Head, Celent Risk and Compliance

Arin Ray, Senior Analyst, Celent Risk and Compliance

How much do financial institutions spend on AML-KYC technology and operations? How will AML-KYC investments evolve? This session will present Celent’s granular estimates of AML-KYC spending globally and examine the factors driving spending, including investments in AI and other next generation technologies to reign in ballooning costs.

Applying AI and Advanced Analytics In AML: Tools And Techniques For Improving Efficiency And Effectiveness

Arin Ray, Senior Analyst, Celent Risk and Compliance

Rather than thinking of them as a single solution that fixes all problems, artificial intelligence should be viewed as a toolkit with different capabilities to solve specific pain points. This session will explore the potential for AI in the AML-KYC context, examine specific analytic approaches to AML-KYC use cases, and provide guidelines.
