Glasgow fintech wins contract in Peru

31 Oct 2019

Peru's Ministerio Publico has adopted Glasgow based fintech company Altia-ABM's suite of financial investigation and analysis software, to speed up complex financial investigations and strengthen its prosecutions service.

The Ministry, based in Lima, has a huge, diverse remit, equivalent to the UK's Crown Prosecution Service, but with added responsibility for tax investigations and asset recovery.

The department handles thousands of cases per year, encompassing major investigations into fraud perpetrated by organised criminal gangs, plus money laundering and tax evasion probes and also brings prosecutions for these crimes.

This year, Altia-ABM sent a team to Latin America to ensure its customers there are supported in the use of and maximising the benefits of its software.

Rob Sinclair, Chief Operations Officer, Altia-ABM (pictured) said: "This contract builds on our existing partnership with the National Crime Agency in the UK. Originally the NCA asked us to work with their network of international liaison officers to help combat serious and organised crime worldwide.

"As part of this brief, we began supplying software and training investigators in Peru and Colombia over two years ago. Since then we have continued to work with law enforcement agencies and government departments to assist in their drive towards greater efficiency."
