Financial Crime Compliance

Turning financial crime fighting into a competitive advantage

Protiviti offers a multi-dimensional set of solutions 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 proven solutions to  help our clients more effectively and efficiently manage their financial crime risks.  

The financial crime landscape has become increasingly complex due to global uncertainty, increasingly sophisticated criminals and an ever-changing regulatory environment.  The “cost of compliance” continues to be a major challenge for financial services companies with innovation and technology essential to successfully addressing that challenge. As financial crimes become more sophisticated and the regulatory landscape continues to evolve, financial institutions need  to adopt innovative, proactive and sustainable measures to keep up with the pace of change and effectively combat “bad” actors. We view Financial crime as falling into five broad areas:

  • Money Laundering. Terrorist Financing and Sanctions evasion
  • Fraud and Identity Theft
  • Bribery and Corruption 
  • Market Manipulation and Insider Trading

Our set of seven core solutions are designed to help Financial Institutions to comply with the plethora of Financial Crime related regulations in a cost optimised way. Our suite of solutions span:  Anti-Money Laundering, OFAC and Trade Sanctions; Fraud Prevention and Detection, Anti-Bribery & Corruption, Market Abuse & Trade Surveillance.
