In 2023, the prevention of money laundering and terrorist financing will be a major focus, in particular through the introduction of new technical tools for the screening of sanctioned and politically exposed persons, the updating of the transaction monitoring system, and the updating of procedures.
As the cyber threat grows, the Company will also focus on information security and cybersecurity to protect corporate systems from potential hacking and other threats. Again, as the regulator’s requirements grow, a lot of attention and resources will be devoted to internal controls and risk management. On the business side, the plan is to improve business efficiency, to achieve higher profitability in all business lines and to end 2023 in profit with double-digit revenue growth.
