Introduction
New way of Conducting
Business
Goats

Not so long ago, the idea of allowing back-office employees of Swiss & EU financial services companies to work from home, would send shivers down the spine.

COVID-19 has significantly impacted the entire global economy and shaped the way organizations work nowadays. Financial services firms, in order to survive, must have adopted working from home models which has been an eye-opener on the massive spending cuts on office space and infrastructure to counter the economic crisis. It is not a surprise that the majority of the financial players see back office roles to continue working remotely and consider moving them to more attractive locations.

 

Outsourcing services abroad is not a new concept but a verified hybrid business model that reduces turnaround time, increases efficiency, cuts costs and eventually generates profit.

Today, outsourcing financial data processing and client due diligence processes are allowed as long as the financial services companies follow the regulations and standards applicable to their specific structures.

Swiss and EU Financial Data Center

APOG provides skilled resources for better decision-making and increased efficiency to address high-volume and time-consuming data processing in the field of Financial Data Management and Compliance.

Banks and financial market participants have been put under increasing regulatory pressure for the use of financial data analytics and the rising need of detecting schemes allowing laundered money to enter the financial system.
Today the focus is on the question how the organization reaches compliance effectiveness and whether the company’s management acts on the findings.
Our teams have assisted clients in financial data analysis for investment reporting obligations and performing an array of tasks related to Know-Your-Customer (KYC) and transaction activity scanning requirements under Swiss and EU laws and best practices.
APOG constantly improves, automates, and eventually takes the responsibility for the execution of a wide range of complex day-to-day operations.
Our key mission is to better understand the data we produce and address the impediments in advance of financial reporting quality defects and compliance failures.
While the cost benefits of a nearshore outsourcing to Poland look attractive, the value of data and its protection play first fiddle at our firm.

Our mission is to constantly train people on the awareness of the sensitive tasks they are entrusted to complete. With tone from the top, we hold employees accountable for following internal policies and procedures that make the organization integrated engine with clearly defined mission and values.
