FIS partners with FICO on new AML solution

The new solution will leverage machine learning and artificial intelligence to identify suspicious activity and provide detailed, transparent intelligence to bank investigators.

Financial services technology provider FIS (NYSE:FIS) today announces a partnership with predictive analytics and financial crime prevention services provider FICO to build an advanced anti-money laundering (AML) solution.

The solution will seek to help North American financial institutions keep ahead of increasingly sophisticated money launderers and other financial criminals. The new solution, FIS™ AML Compliance Manager, will integrate FICO® Falcon® X decision management technology to provide financial institutions with a unified platform for AML risk and compliance. The cloud-based solution will harness the capabilities of machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI) to detect suspicious activity and provide bank investigators with detailed, transparent intelligence.

In addition, the AI-based solution can help organizations reduce costs associated with false positives. False positives – system-generated alerts of potential illicit activity that are later cleared during reviews – cost the financial industry a significant amount of wasted investigation time each year.

“FIS is committed to helping our clients stay one step ahead of financial criminals who are using increasingly sophisticated tools to try to hide illicit money activities through the U.S. financial system,” said Jim Johnson, head of Global Payments and Wealth at FIS. “By partnering with FICO, FIS is providing a leading-edge solution to automate routine tasks and reduce false positives that make AML compliance management so challenging, allowing employees to work more efficiently.”
