Hamilton Reserve Bank has implemented Temenos Transact, the next generation in core banking, and Temenos Payments to enable real-time transactions, and cross-border payments leveraging Temenos’ cloud-native platform which provides Straight-Through Processing (STP) rates of over 99%. Hamilton Reserve Bank also fully installed Temenos Financial Crime Mitigation (FCM) and Temenos Infinity to deliver a seamless, simple, transparent, compliant, and secure experience to its customers.
With AI-powered Temenos FCM embedded across the technology platform, Hamilton Reserve Bank benefits from the lowest levels of false positives in the industry at 2.5%. The bank completely scans all SWIFT transactions in real-time, screens watchlists, and leverages AI-based technology for suspicious activity prevention without detracting from a satisfactory customer experience.
Hamilton Reserve Bank leveraged authID.ai, a Temenos MarketPlace partner, to access innovative pre-integrated fintech solutions that complement Temenos technology. The bank deployed authID.ai’s government-grade biometric identity verification and multi-factor authentication processes to provide strong identity assurance, support automated, remote digital onboarding, and combat identity fraud and phishing.
