Opportunities for Anti Money Laundering Software in the Global Payments Ecosystem

By: SBWire

Reykjavik, Iceland -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/15/2022 -- The global payments ecosystem is thriving, despite the challenges of recent years. Last year payment industry revenues grew by 11%, reaching a new high of $2.1 trillion globally. The sector is expected to top $3 trillion by 2026 and growth is strong all over the world, from Europe to the Middle East, Africa and North America. This is being driven largely by fee-based income, which is increasing at a faster rate than net interest income and now makes up more than half of the total revenue figures. FinTechs and startups have had a big role to play in helping to evolve the global payments ecosystem in recent years, creating opportunities for new ways of thinking - such as commerce facilitation, which goes beyond the checkout to enhance the entire commerce journey.

ESG concerns are going to be at the core of strategies for all those who make up the global payments ecosystem in the coming years. Obligations to contribute to the stability, security and resilience of economic systems are grounded in companies fulfilling a gatekeeper role when it comes to financial crime. KYC and anti-money laundering remain vital for ensuring the safety and growth of the global payments ecosystem - and there are clear opportunities for the use of Anti Money Laundering Software to support that goal. As a result, the next few years are likely to see a significant increase in investment and operational changes that are designed to ensure that money laundering, fraud and other unauthorized access to payment systems is limited. Anti-Money Laundering Software is going to be a key part of that.

Lucinity Anti Money Laundering Software is designed to help support the growth of the global payments ecosystem as it expands in the coming years - and protect the interests of the organizations within it. AML can be a complex area and, given the constantly evolving nature of technology, it can feel like a challenge for any enterprise to keep up. The approach that Lucinity has taken is to make its Anti-Money Laundering Software very simple to use so that it creates a genuine opportunity for any company to change its outcomes where exposure to financial crime is concerned.

Anti-Money Laundering Software, like Lucinity, is going to be a vital tool for growing enterprises in the coming years as the gatekeeper function becomes even more crucial.

The business was first established in 2018 and today is part of a global network that includes offices in London, New York, Brussels and Reykjavik.
