The Hague, The Netherlands – October 23, 2006 – NetEconomy, the global leader in financial crime management and compliance solutions, today announced that Rietumu Banka, one of the largest private banks in Latvia, has selected its ERASE solutions to detect and manage money laundering and prevent fraudulent activity.

“After careful evaluation of the leading financial crime solution vendors, we chose NetEconomy for its cost-effective and easily configurable anti-money laundering and fraud prevention solutions,” said Alexander Pankov, Senior Vice-President and Board Member responsible for Compliance and Risk Management of Rietumu Banka. “NetEconomy’s highly skilled staff and out-of-the box solutions will ensure rapid implementation to meet our compliance timeline and requirements.”

“We are extremely pleased to welcome Rietumu Banka to our portfolio of banks in the Baltic Region,” said Peter Kwakernaak, Vice President Sales and Marketing of NetEconomy. “With the choice of ERASE, Rietumu is taking a vital step towards reducing regulatory risk, minimizing fraud losses and mitigating financial crime.”
