Capital Bank to Fight Money Laundering More Efficiently, Effectively With SAS ®

SAS ® Anti-Money Laundering helps bank optimize investigations, key security processes

CARY, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- To continue its commitment to building a state-of-the-art infrastructure, Capital Bank, a wholly owned subsidiary of Capital Bank Financial Corp. (NAS: CBF) , has turned to business analytics leader SAS for an integrated anti-money laundering (AML) solution to more effectively help it identify and investigate suspicious activities. SAS Anti-Money Laundering dramatically reduces the time it takes to provide business analysts relevant information that improves investigations.

"Our current compliance systems have served us well, but we strive to be best-in-class with regard to regulatory compliance and believe that SAS provides the clearest technical path to get there," said Gene Taylor, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Capital Bank.

Capital Bank needed a solution that could support the growth strategy of a midsized Southeast US regional bank while maintaining an operating strategy of knowing and understanding its clients.

"With SAS, Capital Bank expects to benefit from more efficient and effective risk management capabilities and the opportunity to optimize our Bank Secrecy Act (BSA)/AML processes, limiting and controlling risk in this key area as we grow," said Taylor.

SAS Anti-Money Laundering is part of the SAS Financial Crimes Suite, a technology infrastructure for preventing, detecting and managing financial crimes across lines of business within today's banks. SAS Financial Crimes Suite offers a common analytics platform and module-based solutions that promote solid protection against financial crimes by improving detection and prevention.
