NICE Actimize Recognized as "Category Leader" Across Four RiskTech Quadrants® in Chartis Research’s 2017 Chartis Financial Crime Risk Management Systems Report

The 2017 RiskTech Quadrants® measure market potential and completeness of offering in trader surveillance, enterprise fraud, anti-money laundering and KYC

August 25th, 2017

Hoboken, N.J. – August 25, 2017 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, announced today that Chartis Research has recognized NICE Actimize as a category leader across four major RiskTech Quadrants® in its 2017 Financial Crime Risk Management Systems report. NICE Actimize was placed as category leader, a ranking that measures vendors' completeness of offering and market potential, in four core RiskTech Quadrants® including Enterprise Fraud technology solutions, Anti-Money Laundering (AML) solutions, Know-Your Customer (KYC) systems, and Trader Surveillance systems.

Chartis Research provides research and analysis on the global market for risk management technology. Its RiskTech Quadrant® category leaders are defined as risk technology vendors with the necessary depth and breadth of functionality, technology and content, combined with the organizational characteristics, to capture significant market share by volume and value. Category leaders will typically demonstrate a clear strategy for sustainable, profitable growth, matched with best-in-class solutions, and will possess the range and diversity of offerings, sector coverage and financial strength to be able to absorb demand volatility in specific industry sectors or geographic regions.

"Financial services organizations are exposed to an ever-increasing range of risks and operational challenges. NICE Actimize continues to invest in our platform, including entity resolution and other core components, while implementing artificial intelligence, advanced analytics, machine learning and robotic process automation across our solutions portfolio," said Joe Friscia, President of NICE Actimize. "Once again, Chartis recognizes NICE Actimize's ongoing commitment to innovation and supporting financial services organizations as they manage financial crime risk management in their operations."

According to the Chartis Research report, several trends are increasingly shaping financial institutions' (FIs') Financial Crime Risk Management (FCRM) requirements against a background of rising financial crime and shifting regulatory pressures. These trends include: greater numbers of regulatory reports, more complex relationships involving correspondent banking, and Open Application Programming Interface (API) banking.

"Tackling these issues effectively will take the considered use of technology, people and process – all as budgets continue to tighten and financial crime gets more sophisticated," said Sid Dash, Research Director, Chartis Research. "Several technologies are proving useful, but three in particular – platforms/databases, AI and entity resolution – are emerging as key elements in the development of effective new FCRM systems. To make best use of them, FIs must match them to appropriate use cases, and employ suitability analysis, backtesting and explicable methodologies."  

Chartis Research notes that its category leaders also tend to benefit from strong brand awareness, a global reach, and strong alliance strategies with leading consulting firms and systems integrators. Category leaders can also typically demonstrate an appetite for ongoing investment in innovation, often matched by deep pockets and a strong financial performance. Ultimately, category leaders combine deep domain knowledge in various risk topics with deep technology assets and capabilities
