This module presents the opportunities and challenges from new technologies. The emphasis is on risk-based supervision (a comprehensive, structured system that assesses risks within the financial system, giving priority to the resolution of those risks) as opposed to de-risking (the phenomenon of financial institutions terminating or restricting business relationships with clients to avoid, rather than manage, risk).
In this module, you will further analyse the fact that, as stated by the Financial Action Task Force, it is a misconception to characterise de-risking exclusively as an anti-money laundering issue. In addition, the new technologies presented in this module are not solely in relation to the distributed ledger technology but also incorporate other tools of artificial intelligence, Application Programming Interface, and Compliance and Supervision Platform for Assessing Risk.
