The last five years have seen unprecedented change within the financial services as high-growth, tech-enabled businesses have risen in prominence to disrupt and challenge traditional structures.

However, such success has prompted new challenges for Fintechs in high-growth periods, as increased regulation and large customer influxes stretch organically grown financial crime departments. The balancing act of protecting the business whilst continuing to facilitate sustained business growth is an issue that every financial crime team must confront.

Join us for a virtual panel discussion, where we will discuss the varied approaches taken by some of the UK’s leading, and highest-growth fintechs to protect themselves without breaking the bank. Automation, departmental structuring, and agile resourcing will all be discussed to help you understand what is the best route to take for your business.
