and collaboration amongst financial
institutions is no longer a luxury. In
today's environment, it is essential.

The value of collaboration
In a 2016 Verafin survey of AML/Bank
Secrecy Act compliance professionals

quality customer information while
simultaneously reducing time lost
on unnecessary investigations into
unusual activity.

together and move forward quickly,"
says Rebecca Robertson, SVP and
director of AML compliance at South
State Bank in Columbia, S.C. "We don't
have to sit and ponder something.
