Capital One's Anti-Money Laundering Program is designed to safeguard our communities, company and country by preventing, detecting, and reporting on criminal activity within the financial system.

To deliver on this objective, we consume customer and transaction data from across the entire enterprise, run models to detect risky customers and behavior, and then investigate that behavior, providing leads and evidence to support Law Enforcement investigations and prosecution.

Success in AML stops criminal activity such as narcotics trafficking, human trafficking, and terrorist financing, while giving the company the confidence to grow and launch new products knowing we have sound and reliable AML defenses.

Business Analysts drive decisions across a wide range of Program functions to keep Capital One's AML defenses ahead of advancements in criminal practices. BA's in AML engage in the following types of work:

  • Evaluate customer data from every line of business to set intent for screening logic that prevents criminals from banking with Capital One
