Former U.S. Army Green Beret and Combat Veteran Believes in Giving the American People a Voice in Washington

LAKE GENEVA, Wis. (PRWEB) February 20, 2018

Nick Polce, a Republican candidate for the 1st Congressional District of Wisconsin 2018 election, is part of the freedom movement sweeping the nation. Polce, along with fellow freedom candidates nationwide, is looking to restore the power to the American people by removing career politicians from office in Washington D.C.

Husband, father, business owner, former U.S. Army Green Beret and combat veteran: Nick Polce is no stranger to difficulty. This campaign against career politician Paul Ryan isn’t going to be easy, but Polce is encouraged and looks forward to the challenge.

Polce’s philosophy is as follows: “You get six years in the House and six years in the Senate. That’s it. This model is based off how Special Forces teams work and prepare the next generation of leaders. In Washington, we need to focus on the long term goals instead of the short term – getting re-elected. Less focus on ‘me, me, me’ and more focus on ‘how do I best take care of my constituents and prepare the next person?”

Polce is looking to bring back the concept of the citizen statesman, where the individual that goes to Washington works to serve the interest of the citizens of his district, then returns to the private sector while another representative goes in their place. Mr. Polce believes in returning to the idea of the servant leader so that the decisions made in Washington are in the best interest of the American people.

“We cannot continue to elect individuals who believe it is their job to rule rather than serve. In Washington since 1992, first as a staffer and then as a 10-term Congressman, Paul Ryan has changed. He no longer proves to represent the values of his fellow Americans. He makes decisions based off what is best for his political career instead of what is best for Americans and the 1st District.” – Nick Polce

During his campaign, Polce has demonstrated that his intentions are to serve the citizens of the 1st Congressional District of Wisconsin. His campaign efforts have been focused on listening to their concerns and answering their questions. If you would like to meet Nick Polce and learn more about his campaign, visit one of his upcoming events. The events can be found on his Facebook page (Nick Polce For Congress).

Nick is kicking off a series of events called Pulse of the People that focus solely on listening to the concerns of the citizens. The next Pulse Of The People is 28 Feb @ 6:30 @ Kenosha Southwest Public Library.

QuantaVerse Prospers from Increased Adoption of Artificial Intelligence Solutions That Effectively Identify Financial Crimes

WAYNE, Pa. (PRWEB) February 20, 2018

QuantaVerse, the first in the market with artificial intelligence (AI) solutions purpose-built for identifying financial crimes, finished 2017 strong as adoption of AI and machine learning to identify suspicious financial activity continues to accelerate.

The QuantaVerse AI Financial Crime Platform helps financial institutions and corporations effectively address multiple types of financial crime. Not only does it assist in addressing AML (Anti‐Money Laundering) and FCPA (Foreign Corrupt Practices Act) regulatory and compliance requirements, it effectively identifies suspicious activities that may indicate money laundering, terrorism financing, fraud, bribery or corruption. Increased certainty in the ability to accurately evaluate entity and transactional risk frees organizations to confidently operate in markets and industries that have historically been considered uncertain.

“The success of QuantaVerse can be largely attributed to our focus on developing an AI and machine learning platform dedicated to finding financial crimes. Being ahead-of-the-curve in product development has created advantage for us in the AML space and has sped our expansion into addressing other financial crime challenges,” explained David McLaughlin, CEO and Founder of QuantaVerse.

Key milestones contributing to the company’s success in 2017 include:

  • Product Line Expansion. QuantaVerse introduced two “checkup” services that allow compliance and AML teams to test the effectiveness of AI first hand. QuantaVerse’s AML-specific CCO (Chief Compliance Officer) Checkup analyzes banks’ transactional data to detect false negatives missed by transaction monitoring systems (TMS), while the audit-focused CAE (Chief Audit Executive) Checkup speeds the ability of audit departments and teams to analyze how AML and FCPA compliance is performing.
  • Customer Acquisitions. Leveraging its AI Financial Crime Platform, QuantaVerse has screened and analyzed transactions around the globe and is currently working with a variety of organizations including global banks, community banks, data providers, money services businesses, regulators, law firms, global corporates and cryptocurrency exchanges.
  • Expansion into new markets. QuantaVerse has expanded its work beyond AML into new market segments and is presently engaged with blockchain-based companies as well as corporations concerned with internal fraud, bribery and corruption, and needing to address FCPA requirements.
  • Strategic Partnership with Liberty Asia. QuantaVerse partnered with Liberty Asia, a global NGO that aims to prevent human trafficking through legal advocacy, technological interventions, and strategic collaborations with NGOs, corporations, and financial institutions. Through the partnership, QuantaVerse receives training and frequent data updates related to entities involved with human trafficking and the sex trade.
  • Awards and Recognitions. QuantaVerse was named a finalist in the “technology startup” category at the annual PACT Enterprise Awards, a prestigious program honoring top technology and life sciences companies, leaders, and entrepreneurs. QuantaVerse also presented at key industry conferences including ACAMS New York, BAFT Global Payments Symposium, FATF FinTech and RegTech Forum, Blockchain Economic Forum and more.

The increased adoption of its solutions in 2017 led the company to add new funding which will be used in 2018 to increase market share and expand product development and customer support teams.

Each year, trillions of dollars are laundered through global banking system. That money supports numerous illicit activities including human trafficking, drug trade, terrorism, tax evasion, and the lavish lifestyles of criminal networks. Other financial crimes, such as bribery and corruption, have an adverse effect on both corporations and countries. The expensive penalties stemming from FCPA enforcement actions continue to increase year over year.

Traditional financial crime detection tools and methodologies used to find financial crimes, such as Transaction Monitoring Systems (TMS), have proved ineffective. The industry estimates that approximately 95 percent of transactions flagged by TMS are actually legitimate in nature while 50 percent of money laundering trafficked through global banks is missed altogether. QuantaVerse’s approach marries its AI-powered platform with customer-provided data and myriad other datasets to more efficiently and effectively identify financial crimes. Through this approach, QuantaVerse helps organizations reduce regulatory and reputational risk by identifying anomalous data patterns related to both known and not yet identified financial crime typologies.

About QuantaVerse

QuantaVerse is a leader of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning solutions purpose-built for identifying financial crimes. Utilizing its AI Financial Crime Platform, QuantaVerse integrates and filters institutional data and related external data – including public Internet data, unstructured deep and dark Web data, as well as government and commercial datasets – to help its customers comply with AML (Anti-Money Laundering), KYC (Know Your Customer) and FCPA (Foreign Corrupt Practices Act) regulations and to rid their institutions of money laundering and other financial crimes.
