Network and Cluster Analysis

Network and Cluster Analysis

Network and Cluster Analysis in AML/CFT is instrumental in unraveling complex networks and relationships involved in financial crimes. This technique maps and analyzes how individuals and entities are interconnected, revealing clusters or networks indicative of illicit financial rings. It enables financial institutions to identify and investigate suspicious networks, breaking down sophisticated money laundering and terrorist financing schemes that might otherwise go undetected.

Network and Cluster Analysis in AML/CFT is an advanced analytical approach that examines how individuals, entities, and transactions are interconnected.

This technique is key to uncovering hidden relationships and patterns within financial data.

By analyzing the structure and dynamics of networks, financial institutions can identify unusual clusters of transactions or relationships that suggest illicit financial activities.

Use Cases:

  • Uncovering Money Laundering Networks: Mapping transaction networks to identify clusters that could indicate structured money laundering operations.
  • Detecting Fraud Rings: Identifying networks of accounts and transactions that exhibit patterns typical of fraud schemes.
  • Analyzing High-Risk Jurisdictions: Examining transaction flows to and from high-risk jurisdictions to identify potential money laundering hotspots.
