​Rob Stubbs, Head of Research, Chartis

"Several key trends have shaped the market for financial crime risk management systems. FIs have struggled to integrate their various FCRM​​ systems, and while other areas of fraud have remained fairly static, the payments landscape is evolving quickly. Whatever section of the market they cater to, vendors must increasingly be able to integrate their solutions quickly and efficiently with FIs' systems and/or provide their own advanced technologies to process risk in real-time.

"With respect to KYC, vendor innovation is being driven by four key technologies and service models that can apply to different areas of the KYC process: workflow automation, profile enrichment, consortia and data sharing, and entity resolution and graph analytics. Whether it is enterprise fraud or KYC, NICE Actimize is offering a breadth and depth of functionality in its financial crime solutions that address these requirements."

​Craig Costigan, CEO, NICE Actimize
