Financial Crime Compliance

Turning financial crime fighting into a competitive advantage

Protiviti offers a multi-dimensional set of solutions and managed services to help your organisation efficiently fight financial crime while staying in sync with regulatory changes. We operate in a highly collaborative environment to promote knowledge and skill transfers and enable your teams to lead through innovative and sustainable processes. We leverage our unique, high value delivery model and manage financial crime risks through proven delivery of valued-added solutions.

The financial crime landscape has become increasingly complex due to global uncertainty, cost pressures and technology-driven financial crime. Compliance-related costs have increased with sanctions screening, source of wealth reviews, KYC remediations, and transaction monitoring among the costliest elements. As financial crimes become more sophisticated and the regulatory landscape continues to evolve, financial institutions must adopt innovative, proactive and sustainable measures to keep up with the pace of change and effectively combat illicit actors.

Financial Crime costs continue to escalate, making innovative solutions even more important
