Creates the largest on-line community for financial crime risk management research.

Chartis, the leading provider of research and analysis for risk management technology, today announced that it has signed an exclusive strategic partnership with Financial Crime Risk Limited (FCR), a leading consulting firm specialising in financial crime, fraud prevention, anti-money laundering, and security.  Regular updates can be found at RiskTech Forum

FCR, led by Managing Director Jim Oakes, has built one of the largest on-line communities of financial crime risk management professionals with over 21,000 members globally. This community includes practitioners, experts, and advisors actively involved in tackling fraud, security, and money-laundering challenges within financial services and the corporate sector, as well as various regulatory bodies across the world.

“The rapid rate of change in the financial crime sector, in terms of new threats, new regulations, and new technologies, means that continuous research and information updates are critical success factors for all stakeholders,” comments Peyman Mestchian, Managing Partner at Chartis Research. “Combining Chartis’s existing user-base and community, the RiskTech Forum , with FCR’s online community will create the world’s largest online network of financial crime professionals and act as a rich source of research and thought-leadership for the industry as a whole.”

Chartis has recently published industry reports on enterprise fraud management, anti-money laundering, and operational risk management solutions and aims to continue its research by examining related subsectors, such as FATCA, watch-list filtering, KYC, and client on-boarding.

“With a deep understanding of the increasingly complex financial crime risk environment in which firms currently operate, Chartis Research provides incisive expert analysis and evaluation of current and developing financial crime risk technologies and strategies available in today's marketplace,” says Jim Oakes. “As such, their analysis and insight is highly sought after by both product and service providers and prospective clients. I believe that this partnership will provide potential opportunities for members of my network to participate and benefit from cutting edge research and analysis provided by Chartis”.
