Elevating AML Model Validation through Explainable AI

Ensuring the integrity of anti-money laundering (AML) models is paramount for financial institutions in safeguarding against financial crimes. At Ahrvo Comply, we recognize the significance of model validation and provide robust support to our clients in meeting their regulatory requirements.

Understanding the AML Model Validation Process:
Model validation serves as a cornerstone of model risk governance for regulated financial entities. As outlined by the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC), this process encompasses three crucial components:

1. Evaluation of Conceptual Soundness: This involves scrutinizing the model’s design and construction to ensure its effectiveness and reliability. Documentation review and method assessment are integral to this phase.

2. Ongoing Monitoring: Institutions must confirm that the model is being properly implemented and is deliveringthe intended results. This stage includes process verification and benchmarking to maintain performance standards.

3. Outcomes Analysis: Comparing model outputs with actual outcomes validates the model’s predictive capabilities. Tests such as estimates and forecasts help gauge the accuracy of the model’s projections.

Ahrvo Comply’s Contribution to AML Model Validation:
Institutions often rely on third-party vendors for AML technology solutions. Ahrvo Comply acknowledges the importance of including vendor products within the model risk management framework. We support our clients by offering a fully explainable technology framework that facilitates seamless model validation.
