Building a Top-Grade Compliance System with Next-gen Technology for a Gen-Z Digital Bank
A leading Singapore-based Digital Bank
Our client, a trailblazing digital bank launched in 2022, is reshaping Singapore's banking landscape. Fast emerging as a Gen Z bank, it provides hyper-personalized support, evolving with customers' changing banking needs and expectations. It caters to the unbanked and underserved, including entrepreneurs, gig economy workers, and early-jobbers.
Their journey has been marked by tremendous growth and a commitment to financial inclusion. The fast growth has also come with unique AML and fraud-related risks that it is looking to address with Tookitaki’s compliance platform.
Meeting Stringent Regulatory Requirements to Launch Digital Banking Services in a Timely Manner
As a new entrant to the digital banking space, our client faced a unique set of challenges. The rules were clear: ensure full compliance with the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) before their digital bank takes its maiden voyage.
To keep pace with the rapidly evolving landscape, they needed to onboard new transaction monitoring scenarios at lightning speed..
The bank’s compliance team needed a system which they could configure ‘on the fly’ to meet local red flags
Rapid onboarding of new transaction monitoring scenarios in response to evolving AML patterns and regulations.
Need for end-to-end testing, however there was a lack of source data.
A Future-ready ‘Community-driven Compliance Model’
To navigate these formidable challenges, our client embarked on a transformational journey to create a robust and scalable financial crime solution. Partnering with Tookitaki, they deployed our powerful FinCense, an end-to-end financial crime compliance operating system.
