Transaction monitoring systems for the global banking industry continually evolve in their ability to screen large volumes of data using built-in triggers with automated thresholds for detection of potentially abnormal activity. While all alerts must be reviewed and thoroughly investigated, not every alert requires a SAR (Suspicious Activity Report) to be filed.

Quantazone provides assistance to your FIU (Financial Intelligence Unit) and investigative teams. Our risk-based approach and data analytics tools support transaction investigation and reporting by turning data into actionable intelligence. Our service helps to decrease investigative instances of false positives thereby reducing the high cost of operations caused by increased alert volumes and fluctuations in resources.
