Financial crime is an ever-increasing blight on social cohesion and financial stability globally.
Mitigating it is a challenge for all participants: law enforcement agencies, financial institutions, governments, and regulators globally; it is too big for any single participant to take on, everyone has a role to play.
As gatekeepers, financial institutions have a key role in blocking criminal access to the financial system. However, the pace of criminal ingenuity, primarily led by technological advances, places an ever-increasing burden on them to evolve at pace to keep up.
As a trusted partner, PwC Canada supports clients to rapidly develop high quality and cost-effective operating models and tools that identify and mitigate financial crime risk as it evolves.
For financial institutions, increasingly complex anti-financial crime regulations are creating ever-expanding compliance structures and draining resources, time and attention, away from the core business. As financial systems work to become more secure, criminals are finding ever-more sophisticated ways to exploit them. In this environment caring sustained positive outcomes in financial crime compliance is a challenge. Financial institutions face increasing complexity in terms of their client base, systems and growing regulatory pressure.
PwC Canada partners with financial institutions to make the financial system safe and trustworthy. With our industry knowledge, technological expertise and operational experience, we help our clients build trust in society by partnering with them to fulfil their regulatory obligations.
We provide financial crime solutions using a Managed Services model built around cutting-edge technologies including data analytics, robotic process automation and artificial intelligence.
PwC’s Financial Crime Managed Services is deeper than a traditional outsourcing relationship, providing complex, long-term solutions in areas that require human judgment and subject matter expertise.
The services were developed in response to demand from financial institutions that found increasingly complex anti-financial crime regulations were creating ever-expanding compliance structures and draining resources, including time and attention, away from the core business.
Our Managed Services are supported by the most advanced technology solutions, integrated into one highly automated platform, built on the foundation of practical operational and regulatory experience. Managed Services is a modular technology, accelerating management & delivery of a number of operational processes. It integrates a wide range of AI-driven automations that can be chosen depending on business needs, switched on or off as required and used as standalone solutions. Key benefits include: cloud delivery, low (no) code implementation, PKYC and STP preparedness, and the ability to mix and match applications.
We have invested in all aspects of our financial crime managed service offering: building scale in our offshore operations centres, upskilling our resources, developing our proprietary technology infrastructure. This capability is integrated into our broader financial crime advisory business, providing immediate access to our global network of financial crime subject matter experts with deep regulatory and industry expertise.
