Anti Money Laundering Using Machine Learning
The huge amount of Bank operations performed daily and extremely hard for Financial Institutions to spot malicious Money Laundering related operations. This really impact and generates the fear while performing financial activity. There are already some predefined heuristics are performed by Financial Institutions but still manual intervention required to identify the malicious activity.
This motive the needs for intelligent system (Anti Money Laundering) to learned and help Financial Institutions to fight money laundering in a diversity way such as intelligent filtering of bank operations, intelligent analysis of suspicious activity trained and learned new objectives and rules that restricts, stop and identify the suspicious activity.
Money laundering is the crime which is increasing day by day in the entire world. US$500 Billion and US$1 Trillion amount being laundered in entire world. “Now we know the Money Laundering is very common, important and serious problem not for bank only but for all Financial institutions even government regulatory authority because it’s bad impact on global Economy of the country”.
There are three stages of money laundering placement, layering, and integration. Placement is the process in which illegal money or dirty money enters into the financial system. Then the money is transferred into offshore / onshore accounts or fake accounts. Finally Integration is the process purchase of luxury assets, financial investments.
Pakistan is facing economical crises which increasing day by day and one of the major reasons are Money Laundering due to which Pakistan is included in the “Grey List” issued by the FATF in June 2018.
International banks can pull their business out of Pakistan as a result of the inclusion in the ‘grey list’. There are different steps and efforts are taken by financial institutions to stop malicious transactions using Anti Money Laundering rule based techniques.
Importance is given to this critical issue in the past and different ways was implemented from 2005 to 2017 to stop this malicious activity with the time of different publications. In 1995 detection of money laundering was described by Senator (Senator et al. 1995) which was rule-based. System matches these predefined rules and then would be further investigated by analyst. Further Rule Based was encoded using Decision Tree by Wang and Yang in the year 2007. Rule Based approach depend on domain knowledge and sometime generate false positive alerts with new operations later system updated with this issue by approach supervised and un-supervised by Kingdon, this process is based on “Know Your System”. Zhu 2006 Le-Khac, Markos, and Kechadi 2010; Zengan 2009; Raza and Haider 2011 improved the system using distance based clustering. Further different systems apply supervised learning to identify suspicious behaviour(Lv, Ji, and Zhang 2008; Heidarinia and Harounabadi 2014).
Over decades Financial institution are relying on Rule Base Transaction Monitoring system which generate lot of false positive alerts and create lot of backlog for compliance department to review these alert transactions.
Typically, monitoring starts with a rule-based system which scans customer transactions for red flags consistent with money laundering. When a matching pattern is observed, an alert is generated and the case is referred to the bank’s internal investigation team for manual review.
Using Machine Learning techniques we can complement these rule based transactions monitoring systems by substantially reducing the number of false positives alert.
Machine Learning does not perform humanistic programmed cognitive tasks. Rather, machine learning algorithms learn novel new relationships from data. Uncovering hidden patterns in money movement makes machine learning for AML a very attractive enhancement to existing AML operations.
“Clustering is used to group the account which have the suspicious transactions”.
“Techniques like Neural Network are used to detect pattern of money laundering”.
“Social Network Analysis or Link Analysis is used to find the communities involved in the money laundering”.
In order for this to work, the modeling dataset containing historical alerts and their outcomes (SAR filed or not) must be carefully constructed from mostly the same data that is made available to reviewers.
An analyst, with little or no expertise in machine learning, can then feed the modeling dataset into the automated machine learning platform, which will perform the key steps of the model development process for them automatically.
It will determine the best ways to pre-process the data, structure it for validation and final holdout assessment, distill out the relevant features related to money laundering according to the historical data, and identify the best machine learning algorithms to apply based on this dataset. This is only the beginning of the story of how automated machine learning can be used to enhance an AML compliance program. Dataset: https://www.kaggle.com/ntnu-testimon/paysim1
As of 2017 Banks globally have paid $321 billion in fines since 2008 for an abundance of regulatory failings from money laundering to market manipulation and terrorist financing.
With growing amounts of data, reliance on online transactions, and the increase of digital-currency adoption, banks must address money laundering to not only stop it, but to also avoid fines. Many banks have started implementing business process automation and see Artificial Intelligence (AI )and particularly Machine Learning (ML ) as the next step in the journey to greater efficiency and effectiveness.
ABSTRACT Money laundering is a crime of many approaches, and a host of different laws, as countries do not always have consistent approaches. Combating money laundering, therefore, requires consideration of issues of national and international jurisdiction. The countries world-wide face the greatest challenge of protecting their economy from the menace of money laundering as it seriously affects the economic growth and has the potential to upset the programmes of the economic planners. Banks are used as an important channel by...

Money laundering is the most dangerous form of White-Collar crime there is. When it comes to what would be considered the most dangerous white-collar crimes money laundering would be on top. Money laundering is quite common amongst businessmen, it can have an impact on businesses...
Would anyone assume that a young man who grew up from humble beginnings in a small Jewish middle-class family be responsible for the largest Ponzi schemes in American history? A young Hofstra graduate with a bachelor’s degree in Political Science and hopes and aspirations to work on Wall Street. Bernie Lawrence Madoff was born on April 29, 1938, in Queens, New York. Madoff’s Family originated from Poland and was heavily affiliated with the Jewish religion and community. Madoff was never...
Introduction The case presented depicts a money laundering case. Money laundering is the illicit practice of covering up the source of illegally acquired money bytransferring it through a complex sequence of banking transactions or business dealings. In an ambiguous and indirect way, the general scheme of this method returns the ‘clean’ cash to the launderer. Former Rizal Commercial Banking Corporation (RCBC) branch manager Maia Santos- Deguito is found guilty by the Makati Regional Trial Court on January 10 for money...
Introduction The economic problems have taken a global dimension after the globalization. It has also increased the supply chain of products across the borders. Cross-border transaction of black money and money laundering are serious economic crimes, and it causes substantial impacts on the economic development of the world. The Illicit trade is the fountainhead of these problems, and estimated total cost of illicit trade is $ 1.77 Trillion in 2015 which is about 10 percent of global trade in merchandise...
As the popular saying goes, if something is too good to be true then it probably is. This perfectly sums up the life and career of Bernie Madoff. At a point, he was one of the most sought-after investment managers in America. The cookie however crumbled in 2008 when it was discovered that he had no genuine investment plan but rather an elaborate Ponzi scheme. It left thousands of his clients devastated with the loss estimated at a whopping $65...
Introduction “Money is the fruit of evil, as often the root of it”, a famous quote by novelist Henry Fielding (“Henry Fielding Quotes,” n.d., par 1). This quote quantifies what this presentation will be about today: money laundering. Money laundering is the process of taking the income from criminal activities and making them appear legitimate. This is also known as making dirty money appear clean. A simple comparison I will be comparing a money launder and a magician: a money...
One man about escaped from one of the biggest bank schemes in the world totaling a cash amount of $13.375 billion dollars (SIPA). The name, Bernie Madoff, was one of the most talked about person during 2008 to 2009. He was arrested in late 2008 just on, “a criminal complaint alleging one count of securities fraud” (The United States Department of Justice). Although this at first seemed like it would be tax evasion or stealing a sum of money from...
