Bank-Fund Staff Federal Credit Union Deploys NetEconomy’s Anti-money Laundering Solution

New York – 3 October 2006

NetEconomy, the global leader in financial crime management and compliance solutions, today announced Bank-Fund Staff Federal Credit Union is live with its ERASE Compliance Manager anti-money laundering solution.

Formed in 1947, Bank-Fund Staff Federal Credit Union, with more than 53,000 international and domestic members, is using ERASE to detect and report suspicious activity and comply with increasingly stringent government regulations targeting Credit Unions.

"Bank-Fund Staff Federal Credit Union has quickly reaped the benefits we were seeking from the ERASE system. The system is easy to use, flexible, and can be configured easily to meet any new condition,” said Cynthia Ryan, Compliance Officer for Bank-Fund Staff Federal Credit Union. “It gives us the ability to quickly and accurately identify, investigate, track, and report suspicious activity and this has significantly improved the way we manage and prioritize our daily workload."

“Increasing regulatory pressure is driving Credit Unions to strengthen their financial crime detection and Anti-Money Laundering (AML) controls and procedures,” said Andrew Davies, Americas General Manager of NetEconomy. “Failing to establish new controls and procedures to detect financial crime can lead to large fines, penalties, and lost member confidence. We are delighted to be able to help protect Bank-Fund and its members from these risks with our ERASE solutions.”
