Combining Quantexa’s advanced solutions and D&B’s comprehensive data, we believe we can help companies automate their compliance processes through artificial intelligence, reduce losses arising from compliance risks and keep their compliance efforts sustainable in the long-term.”

According to PwC’s global economic crime and fraud survey 2020 covering 5,000 respondents across 99 territories, 47% of companies experienced a fraud in the past 24 months, with a combined total loss of US$42 billion with 13% of the respondents losing more than US$50 million, and yet only 56% of them conducted an investigation into their worst fraud incident. In Singapore, economic crime is on the rise, increasing from 16% in 2005 to 42% in 2020, which is only slightly lower than the global average of 47%.
