AML-ology is the study of anti-money laundering trends and solutions.
AML-ology is the study of AML trends, challenges, and solutions for banks and non-bank financial institutions alike. We have found that there are a lot of discrepancies in the financial industry about what is common/best practice regarding AML compliance, what precautions need to be taken in order to properly safeguard institutions against potential threats and exploitations, as well as what is considered sufficient knowledge to manage the various preventative programs put in place. We believe that the success of an AML program depends on communication, not just within a single institution, but communication among the AML community as a whole. It’s important to understand how AML professionals and financial institutions across the country, and potentially the globe, are handling the day-to-day risk and compliance hardships facing their organization in order to create a network of information and communal problem solving that could potentially be helpful or translatable to other organizations.
Our mission is to provide thought leadership that pushes the boundaries of value – that discusses the solution to an AML challenge – and to cultivate learning and networking opportunities to further the AML industry as a whole.
As fellow consumers of information, we noticed many comparable newsletters in the financial crime space focus too much on the challenge of a particular topic rather than the solution. With that in mind, we created our own monthly newsletter to focus on the solutions to a variety of AML hot topics. Likewise, we wanted to conduct surveys that would create insight and give back to this AML community we’re trying to cultivate; our quarterly survey is designed with our audience’s interests in mind. Each survey is based around a topic our subject matter experts have discovered to be an important, relevant trend in the industry yet under discussed among AML professionals. Promoting constant learning has become a staple to the AML-ology brand. Our dedication to thought leadership is evident through the various webinars we host and the educational opportunities we strive to generate.
We challenged our team and contributors to address the hot topics keeping our community awake at night, and how to fix them. AML-ology promotes this community involvement by providing:
- Curriculum, our monthly newsletters featuring scholarly articles written by a variety of thought leaders in the industry;
- Surveys, conducted quarterly on relevant topics for AML dedicated professionals;
- virtual classes, or webinars;
- as well as sponsoring and participating in a variety of face-to-face learning events, and so much more!
Since this is a community, feel free to contact us if there is something would like us to research and we’ll be glad to bring you the latest information!
