January 25th, 2018

Hoboken, N.J., January 25, 2018 – NICE Actimize, a NICE (Nasdaq:NICE) business and the industry's largest and broadest provider of a single financial crime, risk, and compliance software platform for the financial services industry has been selected by Bank of Communications Co. Ltd., New York, which operates as a branch of Bank of Communications Co., Ltd. China, to implement a unified financial crime platform initially focused on strengthened anti-money laundering and customer due diligence capabilities. The implementation will include NICE Actimize's Suspicious Activity Monitoring (SAM) for correspondent and wholesale banking, Customer Due Diligence (CDD) and Watch List Filtering solutions. The institution's parent company, based in Shanghai, is ranked as China's fifth largest financial institution.

Bank of Communications New York chose NICE Actimize's competitive offerings in Transaction Monitoring, Customer Due Diligence and Watchlist Filtering, due to its deep industry experience, strong vision, and continued investment and commitment to AML technologies. NICE Actimize's functionality for CDD supports the complete lifecycle assessment and re-assessment of customer risk as part of Know Your Customer (KYC) regulatory requirements including complex beneficial ownership structures.

"This New York branch of a major Chinese financial services organization is an important addition to the NICE Actimize financial crime fighting family, while demonstrating our continued support of regulated international branch banks who have recently been the focus of local regulators. This strategic win for NICE Actimize demonstrates the strength and accessibility of our AML solutions suite for financial institutions of all types and geographies," said Joe Friscia, President, NICE Actimize.

By addressing such complexities as changing criminal abuses of the financial system, regulatory requirements, high personnel costs, and dramatic shifts in technology, NICE Actimize's recently-announced Autonomous Financial Crime Management approach represents a tectonic shift in unifying and mitigating risk through targeted utilization of big data, advanced analytics everywhere, artificial intelligence and robotic process automation which in concert reduce reputational risk and handle these issues more effectively. Autonomous Financial Crime Management also streamlines and creates more productive use of personnel, therefore improving an organization's operational effectiveness and business readiness.
