K2 Intelligence has signed a definitive agreement to acquire Financial Integrity Network for an undisclosed amount as both companies aim to create business risk and economic security service offerings.
The combination seeks to design and engineer platforms intended to help clients confront and overcome a wide range of evolving business, economic and security threats, K2 Intelligence said Sept. 23.
“Combining with FIN and expanding our global footprint to Washington, DC positions us together as the leading governance, risk, and compliance firm in the market,” said Jeremy Kroll, president, CEO and co-founder of K2 Intelligence. “These two teams are led by the top people in the field who have deep track records of innovation and execution in both the public and private sectors, he added.”
By merging the resources and expertise of FIN and K2 Intelligence, the combined entity will work to help organizations and jurisdictions manage risk, protect themselves from illicit activity and pursue business opportunities.
“The ways in which organizations and jurisdictions manage these issues and design systems to ensure financial and commercial integrity, transparency and security have become critical to business success,” said Juan Zarate, co-founder and chairman of FIN and former Wash100 Award recipient. “K2 and FIN’s resources in combination allow us to bring our world-class services and products together to offer new and advanced solutions, novel designs and use of technology, and innovative ways of managing risk while expanding business.
Founded in 2014, FIN delivers an array of strategic, advisory, training, and technical services to a diverse and select group of financial institutions, sectoral clients, and governments. FIN helps to design and implement best-in-class strategies, policies, and controls to protect against the full range of illicit financing threats.
