The financial industry has seen an increasing pressure for regulatory compliance as financial crime risk becomes more complex, with increasing levels of connectivity and globalization.  Moreover, the threat of fines and penalties in recent years has added to the pressure to set the right compliance program.  If you operate as a small team, you may not have a robust compliance team with the resources or internal capabilities to efficiently screen clients and monitor transactions.  Moreover, you may be exposed to global transactions that get recorded across siloed systems within your institution, which makes it difficult to detect suspicious activity.  If you’re part of a smaller institution or have a regional focus, you may also need some help to tackle AML/KYC challenges and remain up to speed with regulatory requirements.  Regardless, we can deliver a holistic risk-based approach through customized subject matter advisory and complementing technology tailored to meet your needs.  We can help you set the right safeguards, so you can easily enjoy the benefits of:

  • A stamp of legitimacy to your project or endeavor and its participants, to be shown to regulators and banks

  • Avoiding the headache of being investigated by authorities

  • Reaching a larger global audience with the right controls in place
