The heart of FI-Comp are the challenges, they minic real world financial intelligence analysis tasks. Linked below are the four challenges, participants will be required to complete. These challenges are aligned to the four financial intelligence analysis areas. Each challenge is made up of two components:
- An example analysis that participants are required to replicate with their own code (no code is provided in the example analysis just the output), and
- A unstructured extension component, where participants have to apply the skills they have learn through the example.
This notebook involves proactive analysis into transaction reporting patterns. The structured example involves downloaded, processed, explored data for all reports then analysing for reporting pattern anomolies. The unstructured extension component involves the analysis of transaction reporting delay. View FI-Comp Challenge 1.
This notebook involves reactive analysis into transaction reporting patterns. The challenge is to analyse the reporting patterns related to countries newly added to the Grey List (as identified by the Financial Action Task Force). For the purposes of this analysis we will be using the grey list countries added in Feburary 2021 which were Burkina Faso, the Cayman Islands, Morocco, and Senegal. The latest list can be found on the FATF website. The structured example involves determining the higher risk Reporting Entities servicing these countries. The unstructured component of the challenge involves identifying any significant change in reporting related to these countries over the year. View FI-Comp Challenge 2.
This challenge involves proactive analysis into transaction parties, basically identifying parties that meet certain profiles of activity. Competition participants are required to replicate the example profile analysis below, which involves identifying parties associated to threshold transactions as well as large international fund transfers. Competition participants will need to perform a similar analysis in the unstructured component - specifically looking into parties linked to Cuckoo Smurfing and large international fund transfers.

This challenge involves reactive analysis into transaction parties, specifically processing a reactive data matching request. Competition participants are required to replicate this analysis. The supplied list of parties is required to be submitted against the party search API to identify matching parties within the dataset. The unstrucutured extension for this analysis involves micro analysis into the top hit (by transaction reporting value) to determine this party's complete footprint in the data.

Please note that the data used in the example notebooks is different to the competition data so the output of analysis is expected to be differrent.
