Free registration required

Executive Summary

A combination of secrecy, weak regulation, and rapid proliferation make hedge funds a very attractive vehicle for money launderers. This white paper describes how hedge funds fit into the overall lifecycle of money laundering; the history of money laundering regulations and how this is shaping the face of the hedge funds industry today; and new regulations such as the USA PATRIOT Act and how hedge funds are affected by these developments. Oracle Mantas employs several advanced detection algorithms that are well-suited for finding money laundering in the layering and integration stages, including Link analysis, sequence matching, and outlier detection.
