Quantexa Chief Product Officer Dan Higgins added:

“Quantexa is delighted to be included in the RiskTech 100 report, positioned very strongly amongst an esteemed list of enterprise solution providers. At Quantexa, we are keenly aware that criminals are hiding in plain sight and that traditional monitoring systems and manual controls just can’t handle today’s complexity, scale of activity and the underlying regulatory shifts, in particular the focus on counterparty risk, as well as customers. The usage of contextual monitoring to detect and manage the holistic financial crime and fraud risks within International Trade, including the identification of prerequisites such as underlying collusion, the presence of shell companies and professional money laundering gatekeeps and enablers has been a defining factor in Quantexa’s success in this space.”
