United Overseas Bank: Machine Learning-powered Alert Triaging for AML Transaction Monitoring and Name Screening
Winner of Celent Model Risk Manager 2021 Award for Data, Analytics, and AI
United Overseas Bank recognized the potential of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML)–powered solutions to strengthen its control and streamline AML operations. Its co-development and implementation of Tookitaki’s AML Suite (AMLS) is a leading use case of AI application in AML, especially because the bank has applied it across both transaction monitoring and name screening processes at the same time.
The solution has resulted in impressive outcomes in high accuracy in identifying both true positives and false positives and enhanced efficiency and effectiveness of the bank’s AML program. It strengthens UOB’s financial-crime compliance operations by allowing the bank to draw out faster and more precise information to detect and prevent suspicious money-laundering activities.
