Bank of Valletta, the largest bank in Malta, is to adopt Resistant AI’s Transaction Forensics product for anti-money laundering (AML). It will enable the bank to prevent and detect transactions that are suspected of being involved in money laundering or sanctions evasion.

Traditionally, banks’ transaction monitoring processes have consisted of reporting suspicious transactions- values, senders, recipients – to law enforcement or regulatory bodies after they have been processed. As sanctions against the Russian regime increase, forward-looking banks are increasingly seeking to prevent criminals from using their services for illicit purposes by stopping unusual transactions in real time.

AI-powered AML monitoring in real time

Bank of Valletta’s use of Resistant AI’s transaction monitoring capabilities is one of the first of its kind by a major bank. The AI-powered monitoring takes place in real time. This allows the bank to further its protections against financial crime in line with changing regulations and internal risk assessments. It can receive huge amounts of real-time data and process it in seconds to uncover patterns and anomalies that suggest suspicious activity. Resistant AI says that its technology adds sophistication to transaction monitoring capabilities to the bank, without requiring a wholesale overhaul of the bank’s current systems.

Ryan Caruana, Money Laundering Reporting Officer at Bank of Valletta said: “We are pleased that our bank is leading the way in innovation in Malta, to remain compliant with regulatory mandates. We selected Resistant AI based on their ability to provide best in class analytical capabilities.”

Martin Rehak, CEO and Founder of Resistant AI added: “Resistant AI is proud to assist Bank of Valletta in providing truly innovative transaction monitoring capabilities. Our focus on enhancing customers’ existing tech with innovative AI is the ideal response to the rapidly shifting regulatory landscape around money laundering. This offers a convenient way to improve a company’s capabilities without overhauling their whole system.”
