SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--FINTRAIL Solutions LLC, a world-class financial crime consultancy company serving the North American FinTech and RegTech markets, today announced the launch of the FinTech FinCrime Exchange (FFE) West Coast. This follows the successful launch of the FFE East Coast in November 2018. The FFE is an open forum that brings together a global community of FinTechs to collaborate on best practices in financial crime risk management.
By sharing information on criminal typologies and controls, members help to strengthen the sector’s ability to detect and counter the global threat of financial crimes, which includes money laundering, bribery and corruption, tax evasion, and terrorist financing. The continued expansion of the FFE in the United States – and across the globe – is a major step forward in the fight against financial crime.
“After the success of the FFE in Europe and New York, we are pleased to welcome West Coast-based members to our community,” said Julie Myers Wood, FINTRAIL Solutions Co-Founder and Guidepost Solutions CEO. “The global nature of the threats that we all face only serves to highlight the need for a network such as the FFE, where members can share their unique crime prevention experiences and perspectives.”
The first FFE West Coast meeting will occur on May 8th, in San Francisco. There, industry experts from a variety of organizations will share their insights into best practices on fighting financial crime. Speakers include executives from:
- Federal Bureau of Investigation
- FINTRAIL Solutions
- Guidepost Solutions
- Silvergate Bank
Attendance is free and the event will consist of a panel discussion and a session where FFE members will share case studies and experiences, followed by an audience Q&A.
“After creating the first FFE group in the UK in January 2017, we now have a global network of over 90 FinTechs that participate on a regular basis,” said Robert Evans, FINTRAIL Solutions Co-Founder and FINTRAIL LTD. Co-Founder. “The demand for a forum like the FFE has never been greater. And, in a hotbed location for FinTech and RegTech innovation like San Francisco, we are delighted to launch a new chapter that will provide a place for professionals to meet and share important insights relevant to both members and stakeholders in law enforcement, the government, and the financial services sector.”
