Advanced trade compliance capabilities for speed and precision
Regulation is the single biggest obstacle for the trade finance industry. Financial institutions are under increasing pressure to ensure they manage and mitigate associated risks. Risk is further compounded due to the complexity of the trade finance process. An industry that relies heavily on paper-based documents for key terms, agreements and details of trade transactions within an ecosystem of cargo operators, freight forwarders, insurance agents and financial institutions requires a compliance management tool that can streamline the day-to-day functions and tasks of the trade operations team.

Through Big Data one can gain insights into trade patterns, routes and commodity shipments that provide clarity when determining the risk patterns in every trade transaction.
