Best Actions for Insurers in a Post–Covid-19 World

In the wake of the pandemic, insurers are now more than ever focused on “empathy”, going beyond their regular commitments to better cater to customer requirements, promote employee wellness, and provide support to their distribution channel partners. The industry has extended its help in multiple ways, such as launching new “need-of-the-hour” products, healthcare packages, or complementary services.

Banking on the Right Side of Recovery Post Covid-19

Banks, reeling from the impact themselves, are under immense pressure to support recovery and growth in the post–COVID-19 era.

Managing Fraud Risk in the Digital Age

In the past, consumers used cash, checks and/or credit, debit or prepaid cards to pay for their purchases. They also used money transfer services such as ACH and wire payments, which had a delay in the settlement allowing more time for investigation.

How AI and Machine Learning Are Redefining Anti-Money Laundering

Financial criminals are shrewd in disguising the origins of their illegal profits and getting that money into the financial system, either for personal gain or to support criminal enterprise. While most laundered money stems from drug trafficking and organized crime, the events of 9/11 also put the spotlight on covert funding for terrorist activities, which has traditionally been even more difficult to detect.
