In this special episode of “Talking Success,” Darren sits down with James Saunders (CTO & Co-founder) and Bradley Elliot (CEO) of RelyComply to delve into the complex world of financial crime. The discussion covers the significant impacts of financial crime, including human trafficking, wildlife trafficking, and terrorism financing, highlighting the often-overlooked consequences on society and the environment.

RelyComply and their fight against Financial Crime

James and Brad explain RelyComply’s end-to-end platform designed to help large financial enterprises tackle financial crime more effectively. They discuss the evolving regulatory landscape, particularly in South Africa, where the FATF grey listing has heightened the focus on anti-money laundering (AML) measures and the necessity for financial institutions to adopt a more proactive, risk-based approach.

The episode explores the importance of public-private partnerships in combating financial crime, emphasising the need for greater collaboration and transparency between regulators and industry players. Darren, James, and Brad also introduce the upcoming “Decoding Financial Crime” event, set for 29-30 August in Cape Town. This unique, invite-only event aims to foster meaningful engagement among key stakeholders, including regulators, policy makers, and industry leaders, in a secure and private setting.
