ABOUT US

‘iFinGate’ is inspired by tightened compliance regulatory requirements across the globe, leading to the surge on costs and fines to the banks and non-banks segments. Scarcity of compliance talents intensifies the problem where automation will be the only way out. 


“iFinGate” is positioned as a homegrown Regtech pioneer, innovating the automated system to streamline the compliance process, converts the compliance policies and regulations to executional process, real time checks on compliance breaches and performs AI-enhanced 24-7 news monitoring. We leverage on big data analytics, automation and AI-machine learning,  to establish our leading position in afore-mentioned areas, and to provide an affordable, efficient and professional RegTech service. 

Our strong leadership team is from both compliance and technical streams, having solid experience in overseeing AML risks on the banks’ business front and its operational flow at the back, and possesses strong technical background on the AI-machine learning and automation areas. Our group have been collaborating with HKU on machine learning projects in the past two years.
