On target to deliver revenue growth of more than 60% this year, Wynyard Group has over 400 customers globally with more than 50 reporting entities in Asia Pacific using its Financial Crime software-as-a-service (SaaS) and organisations such as Queensland Rail, Singapore Stock Exchange and Malaysian Stock Exchange using Wynyard’s risk management solution.
“Organisations are looking to take advantage of link analysis, predictive modelling, artificial intelligence and real-time tools,” commented Peyman Mestchian, Managing Partner at Chartis. “Wynyard’s focus on smart tools for operational risk, anti-money laundering and anti-fraud management position it as an emerging leader in this space.”
Chartis noted artificial intelligence or intelligent machines for detecting and protecting companies from risk and crime is expected to have the highest rate of future adoption.
