Wells Fargo Scales Trade Finance & Compliance With TradeSun

Leading US bank Wells Fargo has partnered with TradeSun to leverage its trade finance and compliance digitisation solution, streamlining manual processes

Wells Fargo has entered into an agreement with TradeSun to utilise its trade finance and compliance digitisation solution, as it bids to streamline complex, manual processes faced in the banking industry. 

Leveraging AI and other advanced technologies, TradeSun’s solution will support Wells Fargo as it bids to reinvent trade finance digitalisation – tapping into the world of cognitive data capture and intelligent process automation. 

What’s more, Wells Fargo will be able to leverage TradeSun’s compliance screening and document-checking AI technology to digitise, extract, validate and classify unstructured data. Elsewhere, trade-focused AI will help the leading US bank increase capacity by automating a series of manual processes. 

Nigel Hook, Founder and CEO of TradeSun, says: “Through our voyage with Wells Fargo, we’ve learned how efficiently they operate. I am personally driven to ensure the TradeSun AI platform continues to accelerate its leadership in the market. 

“At TradeSun, we are inspired by Wells Fargo’s decision to invest in this relationship. It is a powerful validation of TradeSun’s innovation in digitising global trade finance.”

Wells Fargo: Making ground on the future of banking

For Wells Fargo, the move to partner with TradeSun represents efforts to level the playing field with fintech innovators and digital banks eating into legacy banks’ market share with innovative, technology-led customer experiences. 

In January this year, we drew the battle lines between digital banks and legacy banks, as both types of institutions battle for improved customer acquisition rates.

Speaking on its partnership with TradeSun, Wells Fargo’s Head of Commercial Banking Operations, Cesar Gonzalez, says: “Wells Fargo continues to make significant progress transforming our trade finance and receivables processes. 

“Our agreement with TradeSun gives us the digitisation and automation tools to strengthen our risk framework, deliver flawless execution and provide a world-class client experience.”

Indeed, Wells Fargo will hope the move keeps it at the forefront of banking worldwide. In February this year, it ranked third in our list of Top 10 banking institutions in the world. 

Its reach is staggering, supposedly serving one in three households across the US. Now partnered with TradeSun, it hopes to deliver improved customer experience to a significant portion of US account holders.

Kiran Vuppu, Head of Wells Fargo’s Commercial Banking Client Insights and Commercial Lending Product Management group, concludes: “We are designing and delivering innovative products to serve our clients in a more streamlined way across all channels.

“One way our team is leading this work is by leveraging AI to enhance our clients’ experience and working with TradeSun is a key part of that strategy.”
