Financial Crime at PA
Our Financial Crime experts have led some of the most exciting work that the consulting industry has seen in building leading Financial Crime intelligence functions. We have helped global regulators to become more sophisticated and data-driven in their AML/CFT supervision and enforcement as well as supporting the delivery of transaction monitoring engines driven by next-generation technologies.
By blending PA’s rich history in consulting with our technology culture and capabilities, we mix disciplines, deliver faster, iterate smarter and constantly learn — challenging the status quo to seek the best solution for our clients.
As a Fin Crime Consultant, you will be working with our diverse and high performing delivery teams transforming FC risk management frameworks, crafting and implementing technologies across customer onboarding, payment screening and TM. You will also liaise with senior client stakeholders in drafting policy to help to prevent, detect and investigate money laundering, ABC, fraud and market abuse.
Fin Crime Makes a Difference
Our Financial Crime team recently undertook an engagement for a large Nordic bank. The Covid-19 economic relief measures unfortunately have attracted both criminals and legitimate claimants alike. The challenge now was for the bank to differentiate between worthy applicants and fraudsters. PA was able to rapidly break down a seemingly insurmountable task and we solved the client's problem with limited resources.
We identified high-risk customers were identified, and they were investigated and reported – in some cases leading to seizure of funds and exit of customers. Strategies and tools built for this project were also used by the bank in other areas within financial crime investigations.
To rise to the challenge this Financial Crime Consultant role brings we are looking for experience in one or more of the following areas:
Financial Crime risk management frameworks, Enterprise Risk Assessment, Customer Due Diligence, monitoring and screening
KYC and financial crime prevention process design
Delivering new technologies across customer onboarding, payments screening and transaction monitoring
Prevention, detection and investigation of money laundering, terrorist financing, sanctions, bribery and corruption, fraud and market abuse
Sourcing and/or implementing vendor software for financial crime prevention
Designing and working with three lines of defense
Transaction Monitoring model creation, testing and validation
