The nomination window for Aite Group’s Inaugural Fraud & AML Impact Innovation Awards is now closed. The winners will be announced and honored at Aite Group's Fourth Annual Financial Crime Forum on September 14-15, 2021.

The winners of Aite Group’s Impact Innovation Awards for Fraud & AML are leading the industry by identifying and implementing new products, capabilities, and/or levels of automation and effectiveness that are bringing our industry one step closer to next-generation Fraud & AML initiatives. They are the financial institutions and vendors, regardless of size or region, that others will follow.


Categories for consideration under Fraud and AML:

1. Consumer User Experience (End User or Customer):
New products or initiatives delivering an improved, more seamless, or more tailored user experience and minimizing friction (such as eliminating extra steps or actions) while effectively mitigating risks for fraud, money laundering, and other financial crime. Examples can be improved UIs and look and feel, ease of use and navigation, and elevated automation.

2. Operational Efficiency (Internal User Experience, Governance, & Reporting):
New products or initiatives streamlining internal operational, governance, or oversight processes for the organization deploying the solution. Examples can include enhancing workflows, automation, dashboards, or reporting and minimizing initial or ongoing solution implementation, configuration, integration and/or enhancements.

3. Fraud/AML Risk Mitigation (Identification, Prevention, & Detection):
New products, initiatives, or services raising fraud and AML risk intelligence and delivering elevated and friction-right financial crime threat identification, assessment, prevention, detection, investigation, and reporting. Examples can include superior and more effective means in identifying emerging or unanticipated threats, preventing inappropriate access or first-party and third-party fraud, detecting suspicious real-time payment transactions, and complying with evolving AML and sanction regulatory requirements.
