The partnership which was formalized in the form of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), was signed between both organizations and strives to transform the finance digital reg-tech, risk, anti-money laundering (AML), and compliance space. Mozn's pioneering AI-powered financial crime prevention suite FOCAL is already being utilised by many esteemed customers in the MENA region for AML screening, transaction monitoring, risk scoring, and compliance case management. Mozn's capabilities will combine with Deloitte's deep expertise in reg-tech advisory and consulting to offer cutting-edge solutions, advisory and consulting across the region’s financial sector, from banking to fintech to capital markets and insurance.
“The rapid growth in digitalization has inevitably created opportunities for financial crime. As such the risk and compliance functions are now faced with the challenge of staying up to date with the constantly changing regulatory landscape and protecting organizations from potential frauds, money laundering and other financial crimes,” said Malik AlYousef, Chief Operations Officer at Mozn. “Our partnership with Deloitte strengthens our trust with customers to help them monitor and mitigate that risk. Through this collaboration, we will bring together a wealth of resources to offer state-of-the-art advisory and best-in-class solutions in the risk, compliance and AML space for all types of companies across the financial sector."
