Alex McGill - Financial Expert, PA Consulting
At PA, we believe in the power of technology to build a positive human future. For financial services, that means taking a bold approach to technology to streamline and improve compliance. In particular, financial crime is a growing problem with mounting social and economic consequences. We believe the fight against financial crime depends on closer collaboration that’s built on smarter technology, and that successful change will be reliant on: clear leadership, new mindsets to overcome hurdles, consensus on what data to share and when, regulatory support to ensure data protection, and a common technology platform.
