SAN MATEO, Calif. and SAO PAULO, Brazil, Jan. 19, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — BTG Pactual, the largest investment bank in Latin America, which has just launched its new retail bank BTG+, and Feedzai, the world’s leading financial crime management platform, just announced a partnership that will strengthen the bank’s ability to monitor financial transactions using advanced machine learning.
The partnership between the two companies also includes Pix monitoring, the new instant payments system that launched on November 16, 2020. Feedzai’s financial crime management platform also monitors real-time transactions that go through the new channel designed by the Central Bank of Brazil.
“We are excited about this partnership and this new resource to protect and improve our customer experience,” said Rodrigo Cury, Head of BTG+. “We want to become one of the main retail banks in Brazil and for that reason, we are using advanced technology that allows consumers to buy, trade, and engage with the digital economy in a straightforward and agile way.”
Artificial intelligence has proven to be an excellent ally for monitoring financial crime in digital environments, with customers now benefiting from a combination of speed and security in payments, P2P transactions, and account opening. BTG is one of the players that recognize this new technology’s value while being committed to establishing partnerships with Fintech companies that offer sophisticated products optimized for performance and scalability.
