Fraud is of the utmost concern for all financial organisations. These include banks & financial institutions, real estate lenders, business credit and finance companies, commercial investment corporations, asset-based lenders, debt financing firms, acquisition capital firms and others. Having safeguarding processes in place is required both from a legal and compliance standpoint, and from the position of being a trusted, secure financial institution. The financial sector includes new Anti-Money Laundering (AML) rules and legislation, and these regulations are strict and increasingly enforced. As such, remaining in compliance through implementing proper prevention controls is a must. Failing to do so can mean a loss of business, trust and reputation: banking giant Citibank was recently fined $70 million in the U.S. for failing to address shortcomings in its anti-money laundering policies.
