In this seminar Newgen FATCA Center of Excellence (CoE) will elaborate on creating the right strategy and leveraging IT infrastructure for FATCA readiness and compliance. The Seminar will be addressed by Ms Rossana S Javier, Consulting Managing Partner PwC, Philippines. Selected participants will also have an opportunity to hold one-to-one discussions with Newgen CoE Team and PwC FATCA experts.

Speaking about the seminar, Mr Diwakar Nigam, Managing Director, Newgen Software, said: "Newgen FATCA solutions are an intelligent combination of our deep rooted understanding of the act, how it impacts Financial Institutions and our robust BPM and Case Management platform. This seminar will elaborate Newgen's ability to build smart and flexible FATCA processes for banks. We will showcase how Newgen Case Management approach scores over leveraging usual AML (Anti Money Laundering) applications for FATCA compliance."

Ms Rossana S Javier commented: "FATCA rules have been looming for a while and banks are aware that ultimately they will have to be compliant. There's a general 'wait and see' attitude among the local banks on how FATCA will impact their operations. As in any other implementation, the sooner the bank gets its arms around the project, the higher the probability of successful implementation. Software solutions offer an option to facilitate compliance with FATCA rules. In the end, it is the bank's willingness to meet the challenges of FATCA head on earlier rather than later."

The seminar will be attended by business and compliance leaders from all major Banks in the Philippines. It will consolidate Newgen's FATCA initiatives in the region. Newgen currently is already implementing FATCA solutions for two large Banks in the Caribbean Island.
