Prashant Muddu
Prashant Muddu Managing Director & CEO, Jocata

For the past 16 years or so, I have been involved in the creation of a digital ecosystem for Customer Analytics, Transaction Profiling, Compliance & Risk Management. My current initiatives include Artificial Intelligence led strategies for transformation projects that help financial institutions design & implement end-to-end digital experiences with a focus on digital on-boarding, real-time lending (including trade-credit), and revenue assurance (fraud, waste and loss prevention)

With the help of my colleagues at Jocata we are powering Banks and institutions with platform capabilities to create a customer-centric, unified value proposition extending beyond what can be traditionally accessed, by creating a digital ecosystem (e.g. bridging banking, e-commerce, loyalty, payments) that enhances the customer experience, increases their stickiness, reduces cost and lays the groundwork for offering them more customized digital products. Institutions that can go further and successfully orchestrate an ecosystem strategy by building partnerships and monetizing data, could increase their ROE by 9-10%

My previous experience includes conducting large scale customer data transformation & migrations (M&A), in-depth analyses of financial transactions in regulatory/compliance contexts and regulator ordered historical transaction reviews involving thousands of suspected money laundering cases. I specialized in designing and customizing transaction monitoring, fraud and trade surveillance scenarios, optimization and tuning efforts for monitoring systems, integration and expansion of global customer management platforms and development of customer risk scoring models.
