Xilligence announces strategic partnership with Clari5 to help Middle East Banks combat financial crime in real-time

Xilligence has announced that it has partnered with Clari5, the category leading banking financial crime management product innovator to help Middle East banks combat enterprise fraud and anti-money laundering, in real-time. Given Clari5‘s multiple successful enterprise financial crime management solution implementations worldwide, especially in the Middle East and GCC, Clari5 was Xilligence‘s partner of choice.

The strategic plan is to help launch each other‘s products and service support as part of the mutual partnership. This involves managing contacts, providing information and documentation, assisting in implementing and supporting the after-sales support function. "For us, it‘s about increasing the awareness of efcom in the markets mentioned, expanding the offering to other markets and supporting financial institutions locally to build a factoring business with factoring as a service. We believe we have in Xilligence a first-class partner on board who will stand by us." agree Arnulf Roman (CEO efcom) and Federico Avellán Borgmeyer (CPO efcom) when signing the partnership agreement.

Middle East countries have been accelerating the pace of banking and capital market regulations reforms and modernization to enhance sophistication and accommodate the needs of market players. Simultaneously, banking and money exchange sectors have been recording large numbers of suspicious alerts. In view of these developments, the Central Bank of Kuwait has been requiring traditional as well as digital banks to augment existing anti-fraud defense mechanisms.

Given this context, the Clari5 - Xilligence alliance is intended to help Middle Eastern banks seeking advanced, real-time, cross-channel financial crime management capability and comply with Central Bank of Kuwait's regulatory guidelines.
