Spending on AML compliance, including operations and technology, will reach US$5.8 billion globally in 2013, including US$1.4 billion on internal and external technology spending.

In this report, Trends in Anti-Money Laundering 2011, Celent presents the results of an exclusive survey of AML compliance departments at more than 75 financial institutions globally. The report benchmarks AML operations and costs and analyzes trends in AML technology, including Celent's estimates of global spending on AML software, vendor consolidation, and advances / product enhancements. The report also examines the emerging trend towards enterprisewide compliance, in terms of consolidation of siloed AML operations and technology, as well as integration of AML and anti-fraud.

“Although intuitively attractive, many institutions may find it difficult to build a business case for integrating AML with anti-fraud,” says Neil Katkov, PhD, Senior Vice President, Asia for Celent and author of the report. “Fortunately, the compliance-driven development of modern AML software, analytics, and case management has created a new generation technology that can often deliver better results than legacy anti-fraud systems.”

This report is first in a series of four reports covering the current state of the AML technology market. The other reports in the series are:

  • Evaluating the Enterprisewide Compliance Vendors 2011: Solutions for Anti-Money Laundering and Anti-Fraud profiles more than 20 providers of end-to-end AML/fraud solutions, and assesses them using Celent's ABCD evaluation model.
  • Evaluating the Vendors of Watchlist and Sanctions Solutions profiles providers of both batch-based and real time OFAC/sanctions watchlist solutions and assesses them using Celent's ABCD evaluation model.
  • Specialist Providers of Anti-Money Laundering Technology presents an overview of advanced technology issues in AML and provides profiles of a variety of specialist vendors. An ABCD evaluation is not provided because these firms are working in different areas.
