Enhancing LGT’s strategic direction for its financial crime strategy, NICE Actimize financial crime solutions will provide wealth management, retail and commercial sector coverage when offered.
“It was important for LGT to select a trusted solutions provider with which to partner and enhance our approach to managing financial crime,” said Erik Zortea, Head of Group Financial Crime Compliance, LGT.
