In Tunisia, financial institutions feel a great pressure from the regulators and now, being equipped with high-quality watch list filtering solutions is a must have.

As Sword FircoSoft solution meets the requirements of the Central Bank of Tunisia, Tunis International Bank opted for Firco Filtering Suite.
