How is AI, Artificial Intelligence used in banking and finance?


How is AI used in banking and finance?

Artificial intelligence (AI) is revolutionising the finance industry. From predictive analytics to chatbots, AI is helping organisations to work smarter and faster. AI role in Finance includes.

1, Predictive analytics is one area where AI is having a major impact. By analysing data, AI can make predictions about future trends and events. This allows financial organisations to make better decisions about where to invest their money.

2, Chatbots are another area where AI is making a big difference. By automating customer service, chatbots can help organisations to save money and improve customer satisfaction.

3, AI is also being used to detect fraud. By analysing data, AI can identify patterns that may indicate fraudulent activity. This helps organisations to protect themselves from financial losses.

4, Risk Assessment:

Since the very basis of AI is learning from past data; it is natural that AI should succeed in the Financial Services domain, where bookkeeping and records are second nature to the business. Let’s take the example of credit cards. Today, we use credit score as a means of deciding who is eligible for a credit card and who isn’t. However, grouping people into ‘haves’ and ‘have-nots’ is not always efficient for business. Instead, data about each individual’s loan repayment habits, the number of loans currently active, the number of existing credit cards, etc. can be used to customize the interest rate on a card such that it makes more sense to the financial institution that is offering the card. Now, take a minute to think about which system has the capability to go through thousands of personal financial records to come up with a solution- a learned machine of course! This is where AI comes in. Since it is data-driven and data-dependent, scanning through these records also gives AI the ability to make a recommendation of loan and credit offerings that make historical sense.

5, Fraud Detection And Management:

Every business aims to reduce the risk conditions that surround it. This is even true for a financial institution. The loan a bank gives you is basically someone else’s money, which is why you also get paid interest on deposits and dividends on investments. This is also why banks and financial institutions take fraud very, very seriously. AI is on top when it comes to security and fraud identification. It can use past spending behaviors on different transaction instruments to point out odd behavior, such as using a card from another country just a few hours after it has been used elsewhere, or an attempt to withdraw a sum of money that is unusual for the account in question. Another excellent feature of fraud detection using AI is that the system has no qualms about learning. If it raises a red flag for a regular transaction and a human being corrects that, the system can learn from the experience and make even more sophisticated decisions about what can be considered fraud and what cannot.

6, Client user authentication: Services like windows hello, help artificial intelligence help the site to identify an authentic user. This protects users from any fraud that might come their way. 

So yes, artificial intelligence has been taking the financial market by the storm. The results are very positive and the benefits are for everyone. It saves the time of the professionals from doing tedious and repetitive tasks.

7, Financial Advisory Services:

According to the PWC Report, we can look forward to more robo-advisors. As the pressure increases on financial institutions to reduce their rates of commission on individual investments, machines may do what humans don’t- work for a single down payment. Another evolving field is bionic advisory, which combines machine calculations and human insight to provide options that are much more efficient than what their individual components provide. Collaboration is key. It is not enough to look at a machine as an accessory, or on the other end, as an insufferable know-it-all. An excellent balance and the ability to look at AI as a component in decision-making that is as important as the human viewpoint is the future of financial decision-making.

8, Trading:

Investment companies have been relying on computers and data scientists to determine future patterns in the market. As a domain, trading and investments depend on the ability to predict the future accurately. Machines are great at this because they can crunch a huge amount of data in a short while. Machines can also be taught to observe patterns in past data and predict how these patterns might repeat in the future. While anomalies such as the 2008 financial crisis do exist in data, a machine can be taught to study the data to find ‘triggers’ for these anomalies, and plan for them in future forecasting as well. What’s more, depending on individual risk appetite, AI can suggest portfolio solutions to meet each person’s demand. So a person with a high-risk appetite can count on AI for decisions on when to buy, hold and sell the stock. One with lower risk appetite can receive alerts for when the market is expected to fall, and can thus make a decision about whether to stay invested in the market or to move out.

9, Managing Finance:

Managing finances in this well-connected and the materialistic world can be a challenging task for so many of us, as we look further into the future we can see AI helping us to manage our finances. PFM (personal financial management) is one of the recent developments on the AI-based wallet. Wallet started by a San Francisco based startup that uses AI to builds algorithms to help the consumers make smart decisions about their money when they are spending it. The idea behind the wallet is very simple it just accumulates all the data from your web footprint and creates your spending graph. Advocates of privacy breaching on the internet may find it offensive but, maybe be this is what lies in the future. Thus it has to be the preferred personal financial management in order to save time from making lengthy spreadsheets or writing on a piece of paper. From a small-scale investment to a large scale investment AI commits to be a watchdog of the future for managing finances.

10, Increasing Security : 

Most companies have tried/ are trying to implement Artificial Intelligence to increase security in online transactions and related services. Having a computer gateway which can predict illegal access accurately is really one of the most important service a finance company can provide.

11, Spending Pattern Prediction :

 The pattern in which a client spends in detected by most companies/ financial services so that they can detect anomalies in the spending routine. This way they can try and predict when your card is stolen, your account has been hacked, etc and prevent fraud/ theft.

12, Stock Broker Systems : 

Computer Systems have been trained thoroughly to predict when to sell/ buy shares to maximize the profits or even minimize losses during an unprecedented event or meltdown.

13, AI and Personalized Banking, 

Artificial intelligence truly shines when it comes to exploring new ways to provide additional benefits and comfort to individual users. For a number of years now, artificial intelligence has been very successful in battling financial fraud — and the future is looking brighter every year, as machine learning is catching up with the criminals

14, AI banking apps can be extremely beneficial.

15, Improving the speed and accuracy of financial transactions, such as payments and settlements.

16, Predictive modeling and forecasting to make better decisions.

17, Credit Scoring: 

AI can assess the creditworthiness of individuals or companies by analyzing various financial factors such as credit history, income, assets, and outstanding debts. Machine learning models can also identify patterns and trends in the data to predict future credit behavior and assess risk more accurately than traditional methods.

18, Robo-Advisors: 

AI-powered robo-advisors provide personalized financial advice and portfolio management services. They analyze an individual's financial situation, risk tolerance, and investment goals and recommend tailored investment portfolios. Robo-advisors can also automatically rebalance portfolios and monitor investments to optimize returns and minimize risks.

19, Regulatory Compliance: AI can help financial institutions monitor and analyze large volumes of data to ensure compliance with financial regulations. Machine learning algorithms can identify potential areas of non-compliance, enabling organizations to address issues proactively and avoid regulatory penalties.
