Jay Ruckenstein, President & Co-Founder at APPx, said: “We have worked closely with Canadian regulators since founding the company and are keen to take a leading role in defining AML best practice for the Fintech sector. By raising standards across the board, the whole industry benefits from a good reputation, which encourages adoption and integration within the mainstream financial system. The encompass team has been amazing. They understood what we were trying to achieve when others didn’t.”

Ed Lloyd, Executive Vice President, Global Sales & Marketing, at encompass corporation, said: “APPx is a visionary in the Fintech space and we are delighted to support their goal of developing AML/CTF standards and processes that address the significant financial crime risks facing this sector, while also ensuring high levels of customer satisfaction.”
