The total number of cases in Brazil accounted for 7,213,155, out of which 186,356 total deaths are recorded.

Based on industry, the BFSI segment led the SAM anti-money laundering solution market in 2019. Banks have responded to these trends by investing heavily in people, manual controls (“checkers checking the checkers”), and systems addressing point-in-time needs. Banks have typically used a piecemeal approach, adding staff to areas with the weakest controls. Often this has resulted in compliance programs built for individual countries, product lines, and customer segments—with all the duplication that suggests. Banks have also hired thousands of investigators to manually review high-risk transactions and accounts identified through inefficient and exception-based rules. Banks are also spending lots of money to maintain the processes and systems they built in response to remediation needs. Advantages of anti-money laundering solutions in bank such as two-way authentication, highly secured, data analysis, and customer report generation are expected to increase its demand in coming years, which would drive the SAM anti-money laundering solution market.
