AML platform will be fully integrated across Saxo Banks operations in multiple countries

NEW YORK JUNE 23, 2010 NICE Actimize, a NICE Systems (NASDAQ:NICE) company and the largest and broadest provider of a single financial crime, risk and compliance software platform for the financial services industry, today announced that Danish Saxo Bank is implementing a securities-specific, enterprise-wide Actimize Anti-Money Laundering (AML) suite. The bank will deploy Actimize Suspicious Activity Monitoring, Know Your Customer/Customer Due Diligence and Watch List Filtering solutions.

Once deployed across the banks largest operations in Denmark and across its European and Asian businesses, Saxo Bank is expected to have a fully automated enterprise-wide platform supporting AML strategy and compliance. Saxo Bank is a rapidly growing online investment firm that is currently acquiring E*Trades Nordics operations, which includes client accounts in Denmark, Iceland, Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Sweden and Norway.

Saxo Bank required an AML platform that is flexible enough to grow quickly with the firm as it expands into new regions and businesses, said Henrik Alse, Senior Vice President at Saxo Bank. After an extensive review of the available AML solutions, we determined that NICE Actimizes solutions would be the best fit for Saxo Bank.
