Level:  Case Study

An adequate Anti – Money Laundering (AML) program is a key regulatory requirement for financial institutions. Graph analysis can be used to drive detection of suspicious activity and graph visualization can be used to provide insight to AML investigators about relationships which would otherwise be difficult to detect or understand.

The speakers will walk through a case study about the use of graph analysis in an AML program at a large financial institution, which will encompass:

  • The types of graph analysis that can be relevant to money laundering detection (payment, account, shared customer attributes etc.) and to analyze financial data
  • Issues in presenting useful interactive graph visualizations, especially of financial data
  • Examples of graph visualizations displaying financial relationships that can't easily be conceptualized through traditional methods
