The Chief Executive

All Stored Value Facility Licensees

Dear Sir / Madam

I am writing to share the captioned report (Annex) which forms part of the Hong

Kong Monetary Authority’s (HKMA) ongoing initiative to promote Regtech

adoption in Anti-Money Laundering and Counter-Financing of Terrorism

(AML/CFT) and increase the effectiveness of efforts to combat digital fraud and

financial crime in the banking sector. The report builds on the first volume of the

“AML/CFT Regtech: Case Studies and Insights”, published in January 20211

, and aims to give further impetus to adoption rates, which have increased significantly

since the work commenced in 2019.

This latest report was developed with industry collaboration and in cooperation with

an international consulting firm, sharing comprehensive, end-to-end experience and

success stories from a number of banks of different sizes and at different stages in

their AML Regtech adoption journeys. Four broad areas of Regtech implementation

and real-life use cases are featured, including real-time fraud monitoring, machine

learning for transaction monitoring alerts handling, natural language processing for

media monitoring and analytics providing a ‘single view of the customer’. Under its “Fintech 2025” strategy, the HKMA remains committed to the promotion

of AML Regtech adoption to tackle the harm caused by digital fraud and other

financial crimes, as well as delivering sustainable and effective AML/CFT systems.

Stored Value Facility licensees are encouraged to study the report and have regard to

the shared experience and insight to help staying effective and efficient in the light

of evolving risks.

Should you have any questions regarding this circular, please contact us at

Yours faithfully, Carmen Chu



Make the right and trusted choice to grow
