New strategic partnership provides an integrated fraud management approach to banks and insurers

Sydney, Australia - Banks and insurers can now access a seamless fraud detection and investigation system following the announcement of strategic partnership between GBG, a fraud detection business and Polonious, as specialist investigation technology provider.

The partnership means banks and insurers can combine the best available fraud protection tool with the best available fraud investigation tool. This comes after the announcement of last year’s online fraud statistics coming in at $476 million. An integrated approach means businesses can rapidly expedite insurance claims flagged as potentially fraudulent and speed up the process from detection to investigation outcome.

Polonious Investigation Management System was designed by experts in the investigations industry. It is specifically geared towards fraud investigations of all types.

Stuart Guthrie, Co-CEO at Polonious explains: “GBG Instinct is an industry leader in Financial Fraud detection. They bring value to Polonious’ clients added peace of mind, knowing their fraud is being detected as soon as it is presented. The integration between GBG and Polonious is beneficial as it ensures fraud isdetected and investigated using the most efficient process possible.”

Mat Demetriou, ANZ Country Manager at GBG shares: “GBG is proud to promote industry collaboration in fraud and risk management. We know criminals are working together strategically to commit fraud; therefore, it’s critical for organisations to work together to effectively combat their malicious activities.
