Stocktake on Data Pooling, Collaborative Analytics and Data Protection

This report says that technological advances in recent years allow financial institutions to analyse large amounts of structured and unstructured data more efficiently and identify patterns and trends more effectively.  This report examines commercially available or emerging technologies that facilitate advanced AML/CFT analytics within regulated entities.  It also looks at technologies that allow collaborative analytics between financial institutions, while respecting national and international data privacy and protection legal frameworks.  Through a questionnaire, engagement with public and private sector experts, and a review of case studies, the stocktake examines commercially available or emerging technologies that facilitate advanced AML/CFT analytics within regulated entities or collaborative analytics between financial institutions, while respecting data privacy and protection.  This report also includes an analysis of the intended objectives and drivers for the use of these new technologies and identifies policy considerations and potential solutions raised by questionnaire respondents and experts when considering or deploying such technologies. This report acknowledges that AML/CFT and data privacy and protection are both significant public interests that serve important objectives, which are neither in opposition nor inherently mutually exclusive.
