In 2022, a leading banking group in Georgia sought out D8 to address their need for an effective solution to enhance AML screening processes. Their objective was to ensure full compliance with the new regulations of FMS Georgia. To do that, our client needed an automated KYC, onboarding, and monitoring system. Our client chose D8 among other contestants due to our excellent reputation in Georgia and previous track record of successful AML solution implementations. For example, for a few Lithuanian EMIs last year (you can read this case and this case) and a UK FI in 2020 (this case).
Solution We Offered
We offered Anti Money Laundering Platform – our premier solution for automating AML screening and other processes. The objective was to revamp KYC, onboarding, and transaction monitoring procedures. This would ensure full compliance with the updated FMS Georgia monitoring and record-keeping standards. The updated standards require organizations to use comprehensive automated tools to collect data about customer account activity and changes in personal information. FMS Georgia also requires timely reporting of all suspicious activity that is almost impossible to track without having an automated AML screening solution in place.
After careful consideration, our client opted for the D8 solution, recognizing our established reputation and a track record of successful implementations in similar contexts. This decision reflects their confidence in our ability to deliver results that align with their specific requirements and regulatory obligations.
Anti Money Laundering Platform was configured for 2 activity streams. The first one was an enhanced KYC, ensuring that proper due diligence is run on all new customers. If there are any customer information changes, the Anti Money Laundering Platform will track that and automatically generate a report for FMS Georgia. The second one was a continuous monitoring of all activity with customers’ accounts. Here also, our client needed a sophisticated system that could flag all payments that meet specific patterns and report them in real time. As a trusted partner, we are committed to collaborating closely with our client to tailor our solution to their unique operational landscape, ensuring seamless integration and sustained efficacy in AML screening processes.
