Genpact (NYSE: G), a global professional services firm focused on delivering outcomes that transform businesses, expanded its relationship with Amazon Web Services, Inc. (AWS) to transform financial crime risk operations, leveraging generative AI and large language models (LLMs). Integrating Genpact's proprietary cloud-based financial crime suite, riskCanvas™, with Amazon Bedrock, has led to accelerated efficiencies and impact for clients such as Apex Fintech Solutions.
Amazon Bedrock is a fully managed service that enables developers to test, integrate, and deploy industry-leading foundation models (FMs) via an application programming interface (API) and customize the models to best suit their unique use cases.
Building on its existing relationship with AWS, Genpact is now combining its intellectual property and deep industry expertise with AWS's generative AI capabilities.
For example, seamlessly incorporating Amazon Bedrock FMs into Genpact's riskCanvas financial crimes software suite aims to unlock exponential value and improve speed and accuracy in the detection, investigation, and prevention of financial crime threats for operations across enterprises. This allows experts to review outputs and incorporate a guided decision-making process, providing comprehensive summaries and analyses of potential financial crime activities – accelerating both efficiency and precision.
Genpact engaged multiple riskCanvas clients to significantly improve the detection, investigation, and prevention of a wide range of financial crime threats. As a result, Genpact is now driving accelerated efficiencies and delivering substantial impact for these clients in finance and capital markets, exemplified by their work with Apex Fintech Solutions.
"Financial criminals are constantly innovating, which means financial services companies need to use advanced digital technologies to stay one step ahead of them," said Justin Morgan, Head of Financial Crimes Compliance at Apex Fintech Solutions. "With the addition of generative AI features to Genpact's riskCanvas, our analysts will be able to produce Suspicious Activity Report (SAR) narratives and case summaries at the click of a button using inputs from millions of data points. We expect this will reduce time spent on case summarizations by 60%, allowing our analysts to spend more time identifying truly suspicious financial activity."
Using approved client data from the secure riskCanvas ecosystem, combined with Amazon Bedrock's secure data handling, enables the generation of highly accurate outcomes while maintaining data protection across clients.
"Responsible AI is a core consideration in AI implementation and its importance will continue to increase, said Atul Deo, General Manager, Amazon Bedrock at AWS. Amazon Bedrock is rooted in secure data handling, encrypting all data and allowing users to customize models privately. Integrated with Genpact's riskCanvas, this powerful combination enables our mutual customers to enhance productivity in investigating, detecting, and preventing financial crime threats.
The initiative enables clients to fully leverage the potential of generative AI solutions and drive secure, scalable, AI-led transformation.
"Data complexity and volume, false positives, and evolving sophisticated criminal tactics are accelerating the need for businesses to harness generative AI to transform financial crime operations," said BK Kalra, Global Business Leader, Financial Services, Consumer and Healthcare, Genpact. "Genpact's expanded relationship with AWS represents a pivotal step in redefining the operations landscape for enterprises. Together we can unlock untapped value, and fuel significant growth opportunities for our clients, solidifying our commitment to delivering valuable business impact."

Genesis Global | September 25, 2023
Genesis Global, a low-code application development platform tailored for financial market organizations, has unveiled a new solution designed to streamline investment decisions for asset managers by aggregating new bond deal data. In the fast-paced primary markets for corporate bonds, asset managers often have just two hours to analyze and request allocations for new bond deals. The market's fragmentation makes this problem worse because banks use a variety of platforms, including DirectBooks, Ipreo (S&P Global), Bloomberg, Refinitiv, and email, to market about 40 new bond deals every day with frequent updates.
Genesis' customizable Primary Bond Issuance solution consolidates deal data from various sources into a single, real-time workspace. This workspace facilitates rapid decision-making by allowing portfolio managers, credit analysts, and traders to collaborate effectively.
Rahul Kambli, Product Manager for Primary Bond Issuance at Genesis, reportedly highlighted the pressure on asset managers to make quick decisions in the primary bond markets, stating,
Asset managers are under pressure to make decisions extremely quickly in bond primary markets, but failure is not an option because of the opportunity cost of missing out on the best deals.

The Primary Bond Issuance solution incorporates AI-driven handlers to automatically process unstructured data received via instant messages and email, reducing the need for manual data entry. This AI technology is part of Genesis' broader investment in AI as a platform service across their solutions.
Key features of the solution include data aggregation, normalization, and scrubbing; AI-driven data processing; integration with analytics, reference data, and compliance systems; connectivity to order management systems for allocation requests; customizable alerts and workflow tools; full audit functionality; and collaboration tools such as Symphony for faster decision-making.
Genesis Global's Primary Bond Issuance solution is built on their low-code application development platform and offers configurability to suit user preferences for integrations and workflow design. It exemplifies Genesis' commitment to helping institutional asset managers automate their investment processes through modern applications that facilitate collaboration and data sharing among portfolio managers, traders, and credit analysts.
