Last week, Leaders in Finance hosted their first event dedicated to the topic of anti-money laundering (AML). During the event, leaders from the finance sector and AML chain partners, both public and private, had a chance to discuss the importance of mutual trust, and how effective our approaches have been so far. Companies cannot afford to wait for policymakers to take action. There are many possibilities for tracking down money launderers, even without using GDPR-sensitive data. It is important for AML tech companies to explore what they can accomplish within the existing policy climate. The feedback loop that we have been waiting for is actually possible within AI models. It is safe to say that AI can help fill the gap in AML, as long as certain conditions are met.
