Name Matching Transaction NMT
Risk-based Payment Monitoring
One financial transaction connects two parties: the ordering party and the recipient of the payment. A payment can create difficulties for a bank when the counter party is not a customer of the institution and is determined to be dubious. Our compliance module Name Matching Transaction (NMT) monitors unusual transactions and checks all transactions before they are executed. The software follows a risk-based approach and distinguishes between incoming and outgoing payments, integrates relevant internal and external checklists, and offers many helpful functionalities for payment monitoring.
NMT checks all transactions before they are booked. Sender and recipient data is checked against entries on blacklists. As soon as a transaction is classified as unusual, its execution is temporarily halted.
Supports Common Lists
NMT allows for the import and check against all common lists. Names are compared against commercial, government and internal lists, followed by checks against embargo and blocked institutions lists.
NMT offers convenient functionalities to compile and administer checklists and criteria directly within the application, such as countries, banks or keywords.
Every incoming and outgoing payment (blocking direction) is checked prior to posting/execution. Critical transactions are put on hold and must be approved manually.
Electronic workflows support the clarification of hits. Hits that are not processed within a defined time period are approved automatically. Clarification is done later in these cases.
White List Functionality
NMT offers the ability to define exceptions so that no hits are generated. Once a match is identified and clarified, white list functionality automatically prevents a second hit.
