ARIC Risk Hub simultaneously analyzes multiple events to assess risk levels and identify anomalous behavior, enabling HSBC analysts to prioritize alerts and predict future threats – protecting customers from the global impact of financial crime.
In 2021, HSBC won Celent’s Model Risk Manager Award for their innovation in transaction monitoring with ARIC Risk Hub. Watch the interview or download the case study below.
Insurance transactions are more structured than the flow of funds as seen for example in banking products. Therefore, the scope for managing money laundering risk within these transactions requires a bespoke solution to address specific transaction monitoring risks. In addition to the recent Model Risk Manager Award, Celent has published an in-depth case study that details HSBC’s strategy, implementation, benefits, and learnings.
HSBC celebrates receiving Celent’s Model Risk Manager Award for Legacy and Ecosystem Transformation, at its 15th annual Innovation & Insight Week. The award recognizes how HSBC innovated transaction monitoring for its insurance business with the ARIC™ Risk Hub, the first AML technology deployed within the bank to use industry-leading rules and machine learning models.
