The Leading Software for Money-Laundering Research and Monitoring
Products offered by insurance companies to insure life or casualties as well as premium refunds are of great interest for money launderers. Therefore, the legislator obliges insurance companies to implement systems that can detect a dubious business relation or suspicious transaction.
FICO TONBELLER helps insurance companies through all anti-money laundering aspects and stages with an integrated solution, whose components can also be employed as stand-alone applications. The solutions follow the risk-based approach and facilitates the identification, categorization, and description of money-laundering risks. Based on derived prevention measures, the configured research and monitoring system filters relevant money-laundering issues through analysis of the combined partner, contract, and payment data. Due diligence corresponds to the customer's risk class. Customer data is continually matched with sanction, PEP, and other lists. Alerts are edited in Case Management. Payments from or to sanctioned persons, organizations, or persons on the watch list are stopped and revised. Integrated cockpits allow the company's management to control money-laundering.
