The benefits of investing in a managed service for financial crime prevention

In this blog post, Gunnar Koren writes about the advantages for banks that choose a managed service for their financial crime prevention efforts.

TietoEVRY's managed service for financial crime prevention allows banks to free up their own resources and focus on their customers’ needs.

Why should banks consider investing in a managed service for financial crime prevention? Because it will provide them with operational efficiency, reduced costs, effective end-customer interactions, fewer false positives, and shared costs on compliance and technological development.

TietoEVRY’s calculations suggest that implementing a managed service for monitoring payment card transactions and accounts can potentially save customers between 25% and 60% in operational costs. Moreover, utilising a utility setup on transaction monitoring enables TietoEVRY to detect fraud faster, protecting payment service users and organisations from criminal activity more efficiently.

Training and retaining a highly skilled and efficient workforce to fight financial crime is difficult and expensive. At the same time, technical developments and regulatory changes are creating a growing need for companies to have in-house competencies on all levels within their organisation. Companies are therefore sweeping the labour market to find talented employees with the right levels of technical and regulatory expertise. This in turn is driving costs and increasing the need for resource management.

Alternative to high running costs and heavy technology investments

At TietoEVRY we offer an alternative to high running costs and heavy technology investments. Thanks to our long experience in running financial crime prevention operations for our customers, we have created an optimal setup for leveraging the latest technology in line with regulatory demands. Combining different transaction types in a multi-tenant monitoring utility, we can detect patterns at entity and network level creates opportunities to share threat patterns across our customers’ risk exposure. Highly trained analysts are working 24/7 on monitoring emerging risk patterns with the help of machine learning algorithms and AI. As soon as the system flags or stops a specific transaction, we notify your end client.

Close to one hundred satisfied customers are already enjoying the lowest basis points in the market, monitoring and reporting in compliance with PSD2, and saving millions of Euros each year through our service. As an example, our Blocking of Rogue Merchants service stops thousands of transactions each week, protecting end customers from fraud and saving organisations hundreds of hours spent on chargebacks and disputes.
