Member Spotlight: Vasco Pay, Digital Payments Accelerator Program

Anyone with experience in payments (including the 47 payment companies in this community) will understand the complexity and costs involved in bringing a payment product to market.

Open Banking has revolutionised the world of payments, resulting in the rise of ‘bank in a box’ and ‘banking as a service’, which provides open access to infrastructure previously reserved for the big end of town.

However, there are still plenty of barriers and challenges – cost, access to payments technology and speed to market. Regardless, the race to create and launch the next best payment solution is on – and Vasco Pay is here to help.

Member Spotlight: ComplyAdvantage, Trust in AML/CTF compliance

Tackling financial crime has been an issue that has repeatedly been the subject of media, government and public attention in the wake of the Banking Royal Commission, and Westpac’s  subsequent 23 million breaches of the AML/CTF Act. 

Some of the worst atrocities on Earth—terrorism, human trafficking and sexual exploitation— are funded by financial crime. Financial crime can only be eliminated when financial institutions have the data and technology necessary to flag and revoke criminals’ access to the financial system. At its core, until organizations have access to a robust and comprehensive database of external risk indicators, technology can only go so far. Significant steps have been taken on the technology side to stop financial crime where it has not been solved anywhere before – but the problem the industry faces remains a significant one for companies like ComplyAdvantage to fix.
