Anti Money Laundering

End the Plague of False Positives and False Negatives

AML fines are currently over $14B per year and rising, and compliance teams are constantly trying to balance the risk of fines with the high cost of managing false positives. Traditional approaches to AML transaction monitoring are prone to false alarms and unable to detect sophisticated money laundering techniques. A recent PWC report estimates that 90-95% of alerts are false positives. Using Unsupervised Machine Learning, DataVisor provides the industry’s most advanced AML transaction monitoring solution that can drastically reduce false positives and false negatives compared to current TMS solutions.

Detect Various Money Laundering Techniques

Mule Accounts

Money launderers utilize synthetic or stolen identities to create fake accounts to move funds


Money launderers avoid CTR reporting through depositing funds in small denominations


Money launderers transfer funds through multiple mule accounts to mask money flows

Dramatically Reduce False Positives and False Negatives

Traditional transaction monitoring solutions rely on rules or supervised machine learning models that require constant tuning as bad actors discover new ways to evade detection. DataVisor’s unsupervised machine learning engine analyzes hundreds of millions of accounts and events to identify hidden patterns between accounts. This approach dramatically reduces false positives while simultaneously increasing detection coverage. In addition, by creating human-understandable rules, DataVisor’s solutions allows clients to meet strict compliance requirements.

Guest Post: The Other Elephant in the Room: False Negatives in AML Systems

False positives have a terrible reputation among anti-money laundering circles. As mentioned in Keith’s previous article on ending the false positive alerts plague, approximately 90-95 percent of alerts generated by TMSs are false positives. So, why don’t we tighten our rule thresholds to let fewer alerts through?
