About Compliance & FinCrime technology at Barclays

Banks face significant challenges to ensure compliance with global regulations. Illegal activity by employees and customers are rare, but increasingly difficult to detect given the explosion of transaction volumes, market data and communication channels, and extremely damaging to the banks and to society more generally when they occur.  Collusion, insider-trading, front-running, money laundering, terrorist financing, people-trafficking are just some of the higher profile activities that Compliance and Financial Crime functions in global banks have to detect and prevent.

Barclays Compliance Technology department is responsible for developing and maintaining the tools to detect Financial Crime, market abuse and ensure that the Bank remains compliant with regulations. We are using Big Data tools to mine billions of data points from multiple sources and advanced analytics techniques to detect financial crime; we are using computer led learning to enhance our surveillance capabilities and we’re developing a rich suite of end-user tools to allow employees across the all Barclays business lines to communicate efficiently with Compliance.
