Verifi ranks high in Deloitte Fast 500

For Immediate Release

Verifi Identity Services Ranked Number 281 Fastest Growing Technology Company on the Deloitte Technology Fast 500™ Asia Pacific 2019.

Attributes its 253% Percent Revenue Growth to the demand for innovative RegTech products such as Cloudcheck.

Auckland, New Zealand, 16 December 2019 – Verifi Identity Services today announced that it ranked Number 281 on the Deloitte Technology Fast 500™ Asia Pacific 2019, a ranking of the 500 fastest growing technology companies in Asia Pacific. Rankings are based on percentage revenue growth over three years. Verifi Identity Services grew 253% during this period.

This is second successive year that Verifi Identity Services has made the Deloitte Technology Fast 500™ Asia Pacific list.

Verifi Identity Services’ Managing Director, Vincent McCartney, credits its growth on the continuing demand for innovative RegTech products such as Cloudcheck. He said, "An ever-increasing number of companies captured by New Zealand’s Anti-Money laundering legislation are realising that by using Cloudcheck they can streamline their customer onboarding, increase revenue, reduce costs and improve their overall customer experience.

To place 281st in Asia Pacific, on the back last year’s 154th place, is an outstanding achievement and shows just how much New Zealand companies are continuing to embrace our innovative Cloudcheck service. Whether its to meet their AML/CFT obligations or to ensure their customers are old enough to buy their products, New Zealand companies are embracing technology.”

“Success in the technology sector requires a special mix of innovation, creativity and leadership,” said Mike Horne, Asia Pacific Deloitte Private Leader. “With its 253% growth rate over three years, Verifi Identity Services has shown that they have what it takes to create and sustain success.”
