How FinTech is advancing AML Controls in the UAE?
The challenges and opportunities of a cashless society in the Middle East.
With the advent of new technology, the way we conduct financial transactions has changed dramatically. We have gone from a world where cash was king to one where digital transactions are the norm. This shift has been especially pronounced in the Middle East, where a region traditionally dominated by physical currency is now embracing digitization and taking measures to increase innovation.
These changes have presented the need for new onboarding and ongoing due diligence mechanisms, with an increasing reliance on technology to fight financial crime. As more and more businesses move online, it's no surprise that financial crime is following suit.
Fighting financial crime is a complex undertaking at the best of times. When you factor in the added challenges posed by digital transactions, it's clear that traditional approaches are no longer enough. To effectively combat financial crime in the digital age, organisations must take a proactive and holistic approach that utilises advanced technologies.
The move to a cashless society in the Middle East presents both challenges and opportunities for anti-financial crime professionals. Traditional methods of due diligence and onboarding are no longer sufficient in a digital world. Join the webinar to learn more about how investing in technology can help compliance teams:
