All About Real-Time Transaction Screening & Monitoring
Using a combination of real-time transaction monitoring watch lists, and historical customer behavior, AML-TRACE sets rules to monitor suspicious activity patterns and stop high-risk transactions that are difficult to stop amongst high volume data. Its transaction screening mechanism also reduces the number of alerts your team has to review to spot patterns before they turn into risk-based customer behavior.
The risk-based approach is central to the effective implementation of the regulatory requirements. A risk-based approach means the organization takes the appropriate mitigation measures in accordance with the risk level. Our Risk-Based, scalable approach supports the complete customer lifecycle–right from initial onboarding to due diligence that is carried out till the end of the customer lifecycle. Its real-time sanctions screening mechanism enables the organization to focus its resources and take enhanced measures in situations where the risks are higher. AML-TRACE generates relevant alerts that are necessary for auditing purposes.

AML-TRACE detects fraud and money-laundering anomalies using rule engine and machine learning predictive models.
3. COMPLY WITH AML REGULATIONS
AML-TRACE gets sanctioned entities and individual names from sources like UN, OFAC, EU, HMT, and local government lists and any other subscribed commercial list, if any, by the client. Organizations can reduce the risk of financial crime by controlling the receiver and the sender from this data. Organizations can also create their own private lists which can be used for screening.
4. DEVISE CUSTOM OR DYNAMIC TYPOLOGY AND BEHAVIORS
AML-TRACE provides options to create dynamic typology from the known scenarios to customized scenarios. You can create the most convenient typology and scenarios for your business without having to write any code. Based on the scenarios, only the matching violated transactions are shown as alerts.

With our real-time alert system, you can swiftly apply the transaction monitoring rules to respond to suspicious activities in the fastest way.
6. MATCH ALGORITHMS
AML-TRACE works with multiple matching algorithms to derive an accurate matching result. AML-TRACE provides more comprehensive results by configuring the data it collects. In addition, organizations can control financial transactions with various preferences such as name, passport number, date of birth, nationality, and other parameters.
Reports Generated by the Transaction Screening Mechanism of AML-TRACE
To fulfill AML obligations, all businesses need to use the AML-TRACE software that has an AML Transaction Monitoring process in place. Every company has a different rule system (about what comprises a violation and what doesn’t) as per its business needs. AML-TRACE sends an alert whenever a suspicious transaction takes place. The transaction details are then examined by the compliance or risk department officials. Eventually, the firm halts its dealings with the violating person or entity.
Suspicious Activity Reports (SARs)
These are sent to the AML, CFT, and KYC regulators as part of the real-time transaction monitoring process. This helps them uncover and penalize money laundering and criminal financial schemes, & other illegal endeavors. Because of SARs, governments are able to identify emerging patterns across a wide range of organized crimes. Accordingly, they take actions that counteract fraudulent or criminal behavior before it gains a foothold.
Suspicious Transaction Reports (STRs)
These include reports of suspicious transactions–whether or not made in cash. These:
Give rise to reasonable suspicion that the transaction may involve the proceeds of crime.
Seems to have no bonafide purpose or economic rationale.
Are made in circumstances of unjustified complexity.
Need for AML Transaction Monitoring
With advancements in technology, the methods of financial crime have become even more sophisticated. In the absence of a thorough real-time sanctions screening software, there will be no foolproof, credible way for organizations to oversee and minimize financial crime.
Intervening manually to identify money laundering threats is no longer a feasible option. This is because of two reasons: the method requires a lot of investment of time and energy and is prone to human errors. And by the time the threat is identified, generally, it is too late.
AML-TRACE is one of the best transaction monitoring solutions that helps companies identify financial fraud crimes on time. Having an in-built real-time sanctions screening mechanism, AML-TRACE automatically monitors customer transactions such as withdrawals, deposits, & money transfers. These figures are then used by companies as evidence in the audits.
