NICE Actimize’s AI-Infused Transaction Monitoring Solution to Transform China’s SPD Silicon Valley Bank AML Operations

Sponsored by Businesswire

Leading the industry with AI-based solutions designed to streamline
anti-money laundering operations for global financial institutions, NICE
Actimize, a NICE (Nasdaq: NICE) business
and the leader in
Autonomous Financial Crime Management, was selected by China-based SPD
Silicon Valley Bank
(SSVB) to update its anti-money laundering
strategy with next generation AI-infused transaction monitoring
protections. Adopting NICE Actimize’s latest Suspicious
Activity Monitoring solution
(SAM 9), the update will introduce NICE
Actimize’s innovative concept of Autonomous Financial Crime Management
to the financial institution’s anti-money laundering compliance efforts.

China-based partner Sunlight China is currently supporting
implementation efforts.

NICE Actimize’s latest version of its SAM solution, which will be used
in the implementation, combines machine learning analytics for
laser-accurate AML detection with robotic process automation, lowering
false positives and virtually eliminating the manual search for
supporting data and other manual tasks, increasing team productivity,
and reducing investigation time overall by up to 70 percent. Leveraging
NICE Actimize’s experience in advanced analytics and transaction
monitoring solutions, the new SAM solution utilizes automation to reduce
human effort and error, and to detect and report sophisticated crime

Bradley Gao, Chief Operations Officer, SPD Silicon Valley Bank
initiated a rigorous, competitive search for a solutions partner to
update its anti-money laundering strategy, and our team continued to be
impressed with the innovation, professional support, and deep experience
that global industry leader NICE Actimize brought to our institution.
Our mission at SPD Silicon Valley Bank is to lead China in technological
advancements while offering superior customer service, and we look
forward to working with NICE Actimize as we work to further modernize
our institution’s approach to fighting financial crime.”

Craig Costigan. CEO, NICE Actimize
“Demonstrating our
commitment to the entire Asia-Pacific community, we are most proud of
our ongoing relationship with SPD Silicon Valley Bank, and our future
successes as we further focus on China and the region at large. We know
that our years of experience in anti-money laundering contribute
strongly to the confidence the financial institution has placed in us as
we work to continue to strengthen its anti-money laundering operations
with advanced analytics and AI technologies.”

NICE Actimize provides a unique analytics approach for compliance teams
with its SAM solution. The approach combines out-of-the-box, expert
red-flags with machine-learning optimizations to dramatically reduce
false positives. Machine-learning is applied to provide intelligent
segmentation, and to improve anomaly detection, thereby increasing the
system’s ability to identify known and unknown money-laundering risk
scenarios. Additionally, machine-learning and intelligent automation is
also used to prioritize alerts and reduce overall investigation times.
