element of the solution.

With the goal of addressing the Money Laundering and Fraud issues faced by
financial institutions, Polaris unveiled a unique platform named ‘Financial
Forensics Platform’ (FFP). As a modular solution, FFP will help rapidly

unprecedented level of interest, as the AML module of FFP was showcased to
CIO’s, Business & Technology Heads and Senior Data Architects from leading
banks in the UK and Europe.

Polaris is now working with various banks and industry bodies to swiftly
onboard this solution, to help them lead the battle from the front as well as
help their partners across the globe.
