Cutting the costs of AML compliance

What is the breakdown of AML cost by process?
What is the spend on people versus technology?

The annual cost of AML compliance for UK financial institutions is huge, with costs expected to continue growing for the next 3 years.

We have worked with leading research group, Oxford Economics, and experts from the compliance community to produce an in-depth report which includes a conservative estimate of the combined annual cost of AML compliance for the financial services industry across the UK.

Our report also asks and answers:

  • What’s driving up costs? Is it regulation or new criminal threats?
  • What is the balance of spend on people versus technology?
  • Where is most of the compliance budget being spent – and is it being spent effectively?

We explore how firms are dealing with the need to interpret increasingly complex legislation and whether there’s a need to redress the balance between technology and people. Data and technology are already helping reduce costs, but how much more could be done?
