Accenture Introduces Offering to Help Financial Institutions Combat Financial Crime and Comply with Regulations

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 24 novembre 2019

Accenture (NYSE: ACN) has introduced a compliance-as-a-service offering to help financial institutions, fintech and technology companies cost-effectively combat financial crime and comply with related regulations.
Navigating the regulations that combat financial crime can be very expensive, and financial institutions have incurred hundreds of millions of dollars in penalties for failing to prevent parties from disguising illegally obtained funds as legitimate income. It is estimated that financial services firms globally will spend 4% of total revenues, on average, on compliance-related activities, with that figure expected to rise to 10% by 2021.Accenture’s compliance-as-a-service (CaaS) offering provides an end-to-end capability that leverages SynOps — Accenture’s human-machine operating “engine” that synergizes data, applied intelligence, digital technologies and exceptional talent — to help financial institutions manage the scope and complexity of the ever-changing regulatory and compliance environment.Designed to serve the compliance departments of banks, insurers, capital markets and other organizations, the CaaS offering —which expands Accenture’s managed service capabilities — delivers a variety of comprehensive managed services, including: Know Your Customer (KYC): Tools and capabilities that help businesses verify the identity of clients and assess their suitability, along with the potential risk of illegal intentions in a business relationship. One large bank using this capability reduced case processing times by 15% and significantly reduced false positives.
Anti-Money Laundering (AML): Intensive measures to enable low- and high-risk customers to comply with AML regulations, including transaction monitoring and alert management. For example, newly fortified AML controls recently helped a large bank achieve quality ratings greater than 95% and eliminate future quality assurance backlogs. Compliance and controls testing, combined with governance, analytics and continuous reporting. Contract lifecycle management, improved by transformational technologies, process and data strategies for London Interbank Offered Rate (LIBOR) contracts. Privacy data management, to ensure data practices keep pace with changing privacy regulations.

Gen Z and Millennials: All About the Benefits, Not Just the Benjamins

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 24 novembre 2019

Competition for employees is fierce, but if employers are trying to attract Gen Z to their workforce by focusing on perks like free avocado toast and ping-pong tables, they’re going about it all wrong. A recent study from Lincoln Financial Group (NYSE: LNC) and the Center for Generational Kinetics shows that traditional benefits like retirement plans and insurance are most important for attracting and retaining Gen Z and Millennials. The oldest members of Gen Z are 23 years old and are joining Millennials, who are the largest generation in the workforce2, in the working world. Both generations are all about the benefits, not just the Benjamins.
Both Millennials and Gen Z rank salary as most influential when making job decisions, but 60% of Gen Z workers say they would accept a 10% lower starting salary in return for a better benefits package, while 65% of Millennials would take a job that paid 10% less but offered much better benefits.“The recession in 2008 was a formative experience for many Millennials and Gen Z-ers. Many either watched their parents face the challenges it created, or they experienced it themselves during their early years in the workforce,” said Jamie Ohl, Executive Vice President, President Retirement Plan Services, Lincoln Financial Group. “These are generations who now focus on what their employer can offer to help them save for retirement and protect their financial future.” Gen Z ranked perks as the least important factor when they’re considering a job, and 62% said the benefits offered by a potential employer are very or extremely influential to their decision to accept a job offer. And 44% of Millennials have turned down a job because it didn’t offer the benefits they wanted.
Strong benefits packages — including retirement plans and insurance offerings beyond health insurance, such as dental, vision, life, disability, accident and critical illness insurance — don’t just get younger generations in the door. They keep them there.
Many Gen Z-ers are just now taking their first full-time positions, but 91% say that being offered a great employee benefits package would make them work longer at that first gig.After salary (73%), Millennials said that benefits most influence keeping them at their job (51%), and 57% have stayed at a job longer than they wanted to — even though they didn’t like the job — because the job offered good benefits.“Gen Z and Millennials aren’t just thinking about the now — they’re thinking about tomorrow,” said Eric Reisenwitz, SVP and Chief Operating Officer, Group Protection, Lincoln Financial Group. “Benefits have to meet the needs people have today, but also what they are looking for three to five years from now.”Millennials say the benefits that will be more important to them in three to five years are a retirement savings plan, long-term disability insurance and life insurance. “These generations are focused on the substantive offerings an employer provides,” said Reisenwitz. “They are looking for employers that will help them achieve their financial goals, and protect their financial futures.”
