Plenitude, the financial crime, risk and compliance specialists, has launched Plenitude ClientSight, a comprehensive cloud-based Client Risk Rating (CRR) solution. The CRR is a key control for all Anti-Money Laundering (AML) regulated businesses, which is part of an effective risk-based approach. The CRR determines the level of know-your-customer (KYC) and customer due diligence (CDD) that must be performed, as well as the level and frequency of ongoing monitoring activities throughout the customer lifecycle.
The implications of a weak or non-compliant CRR methodology can be seen in the significant enforcement actions against financial institutions taken by regulators globally in recent years. The consequences of error can also directly impact a business’ bottom line if clients are assigned an unnecessarily higher risk rating which may present additional CDD/KYC and ongoing monitoring requirements with associated costs. .
To address this industry challenge, Plénitude has developed ClientSight with a comprehensive CRR methodology that meets the regulatory requirements of major global markets and provides comprehensive coverage on a wide range of risk themes, including money laundering; financing of terrorism; Sanctions violations; Financing of proliferation, bribery and corruption and tax evasion.
