Financial Crime is a critical risk to businesses, there are a broad range of new and emerging criminal challenges facing organisations as a direct impact of the pandemic.

  • With limitations on international travel, conventional transnational organised crime schemes have been greatly affected, organised crime has diversified into fraud and cybercrime to respond to the changing environment.
  • Consumer spending patterns have changed, this has affected the ability of institutions to understand whether customer activity and behaviour is different from the normal baseline.
  • Increased number of vulnerable individuals seeking quick cash or means of substituting income. Criminals have capitalised on this, recruiting those experiencing financial hardship to act as money mules to transfer illicit funds.
  • A surge in internet-banking, resulting in additional volumes of online activity has created challenges in identifying suspicious transactions related to money laundering and fraud.
  • It has been reported that permanent working from home set-ups across the globe hinders first-line defence (self-policing) in a business and can limit the ability of compliance functions (second line defence) to act in an oversight and advisory capacity. This increases the risk of potential market manipulation and insider dealing offences.

Global authoritative bodies have published advisory papers outlining the evolving anti-financial crime challenges posed by the Covid-19 pandemic.

Firms should consider the following to strengthen their position:

  • Actively and proactively engage with regulators or authoritative bodies to gain greater understanding of the typologies and trends emerging from the pandemic, and factor these into their transaction monitoring rules and calibrations.
  • Investment in technology to apply sophisticated risk-based scoring and prioritisation to manage spikes and prevent backlogs.
  • Continue to apply rigour and challenge when assessing customer behaviour and activity – data from previous global events (for example the 2007–8 financial crisis) indicate that criminals actively work to find new ways to exploit public uncertainties and fear.
