  1. How did you come up with the idea and what drives you?

Millions of companies are subject to financial crime regulations but often lack the domain expertise to identify and assess their risks and then build appropriate and proportionate controls to mitigate and manage these risks to meet their regulatory compliance obligations.

Arctic Intelligence was founded in 2013 with the belief that in order to make an impact on the financial crime problem that it was necessary to combine deep domain expertise with world-class technology to provide regulated entities, regardless of their size, sector or geographic location with the necessary tools to manage audit, risk and compliance programs.

  1. What is it that makes your company different from others?

It’s a team effort. Starting out as an entrepreneur you are probably equipped with 10% of the skills you need to succeed.  The sooner you recognise that and start building out a team of advisors, investors, staff and supporters, the more likely you are to fill the skill gaps and build a high performing team that has what it takes to cut through.

We’re about to launch a fully flexible risk assessment solution that is agnostic to risk domain and highly configurable, which allows even the most sophisticated business to conduct risk and control assessments in a proportionate way across any risk discipline.
