BMCE Bank of Africa (BMCE), the third largest bank in Morocco, looked to expand beyond its core market by establishing corporate and trade finance operations in China. To meet the stringent requirements of the Chinese regulators, the bank needed to have the infrastructure to support the new services in place within just six months. To achieve its ambitious plans, the bank worked with expert teams from Temenos to deploy Temenos T24 Transact and Temenos Financial Crime Mitigation running in the Temenos Cloud. The preconfigured compliance functionality of the solutions ensured BMCE met all regulatory requirements, helping it become the first Moroccan bank operating in China. BMCE is now ideally positioned to facilitate trade between North Africa and the Far East.
