Among NICE Actimize's competitive AML offerings, Crèdit Andorrà chose its Suspicious Activity Monitoring, Customer Due Diligence and Watchlist Filtering solutions because of NICE Actimize's deep industry experience, strong vision, and continued investment and commitment to AML technologies, including intelligent automation and machine learning capabilities.

"Maintaining our reputation as a benchmark bank is important to Crèdit Andorrà, and with the recent pressure to comply with EU and US regulations and other global requirements around money laundering, we knew we had to work with an industry leader to address the demands of our institutions located in a range of countries. Andorra attracts investors from around the world, making it all the more critical to have a sophisticated framework that evaluates customer onboarding and monitors transactions effectively. We identified NICE Actimize as the provider with the most effective solutions across all key areas of anti-money laundering, offering us a solid roadmap that will help our institutions grow and adapt with future market fluctuations."Joe Friscia, President, NICE Actimize
