What’s in store for 2018?

In 2018, partnership and collaboration will continue to be critical success factors in the fight against financial crime. To successfully tackle financial crime, the industry needs access to the right information. And banks need to work with each other, with regulators and law enforcement authorities to share financial intelligence and allow the effective investigation of criminal activities when they arise.
