Helping Customers Succeed in the Era of AI
HSBC is one of the organizations currently participating in the Lighthouse Program for early adopters. Each organization in the program envisions using Q Assist in several ways, including:

  • Streamlining analysis, investigation, and reporting tasks for information and knowledge workers to achieve greater efficiency.
  • Reducing the reliance on data science and operations teams for ad-hoc data requests, giving them time to focus on more strategic tasks.
  • Empowering customer facing teams with access to enriched data and insights they need to increase revenue and enhance customer experiences.
  • Enabling teams across an organization to consistently make trusted decisions that are traceable and accelerate operational process improvement.

BNY Mellon is currently evaluating joining HSBC in Lighthouse effort. Quantexa worked with Lighthouse Program participants to project one-, three-, and five-year benefits from deploying Q Assist within their customer facing, data science, and investigative teams. It found an almost immediate productivity gain across three core areas: time saving and efficiency, new opportunity identification, and increased conversion rates.

HSBC anticipates that democratizing analytics and accelerating processes across these areas could lead to productivity gains within the first year of deployment. The company also expects to free up employee’s time, allowing them to refocus on other strategic tasks.

David Rice, Global Chief Operating Officer, Commercial Banking at HSBC, said: “This new solution has the potential to enhance the efficiency and accuracy of complex tasks such as anti-money laundering investigations and sales strategies by providing trusted data and contextual analytics. The introduction of contextual analytics and innovation will enable HSBC to concentrate our resources more productively and ultimately help our customers.”

Quantexa estimates that a tier one global financial institution with three levels of defense in financial crime and fraud compliance efforts, generating approximately 15k alerts a month, could realize significant efficiencies and cost savings by deploying the Q Assist Generative AI Technology Suite:

  • Over £17M in savings enabled annually by enhancing and automating investigating and reporting processes across financial crime and fraud.

Quantexa’s CTO, Jamie Hutton, said: “Quantexa’s engineering principle of shaping solutions to deliver maximum customer value has allowed our clients to play an integral role in helping to shape the product requirements for Q Assist. Through the company’s Lighthouse Program for early adopters, we have the benefit of working with industry leaders that provide valuable feedback throughout our roadmap process.”

Eric Hirschhorn, Chief Data Officer, BNY Mellon, said: “We are excited to see this continued innovation from Quantexa. Our multi-year collaboration has helped us to break down data silos and unify our data with unprecedented accuracy. The next phase in our innovation efforts will see us exploring the potential of enabling frontline workers across the bank to use Gen AI to act on the data insights confidently and reach new levels of efficiency in the process.”

How the New Q Assist Generative AI Technology Suite Works
Quantexa’s new generative AI technology suite will combine Quantexa’s Decision Intelligence Platform and Generative AI through a new data integration layer, prompt builder, and copilot that accelerates the ability of teams to make critical business decisions.

Q Assist delivers trusted, extensible AI anchored by Quantexa’s Decision Intelligence Platform. This lets non-technical teams benefit from Quantexa’s critical platform capabilities including a connected data foundation, graph analytics, modeling, and scoring to augment and automate decision making. The Q Assist Technology Suite is comprised of three components:

  • Q Assist Integration Layer: the nerve center of Q Assist. It is a framework of tools, connectors, and APIs designed to securely link Quantexa’s Decision Intelligence Platform with LLMs and conversational AI systems right out-of-the-box.
  • Q Assist Prompt Builder: an extensible prompt management and sharing capability that easily integrates with external prompt engineering tools and frameworks, such as Microsoft’s Azure Prompt Flow, Semantic Kernel or AutoGen, to put the power in the hands of administrators to define and control prompts and responses that are grounded in contextual data generated by Quantexa’s Decision Intelligence Platform.
  • Q Assist Copilot: allows users to query large and disparate data via a natural language interface, understand and summarize data, insights, and findings in real-time, and automate research, investigation, and reporting tasks.

Today, the company is making Q Assist Generative AI Technology Suite capabilities available to a limited set of customers, with wider public availability planned for early 2025.

Ghana chosen for high-level dialogue on lasting peace in Ukraine


Ghana has been selected to participate in the maiden High-Level Conference for Peace in Ukraine, an event being organised at the request of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy.

It is meant to establish a common framework and concrete steps towards a future peace process for a lasting solution to the Russia-Ukraine war.

Switzerland is leading the Conference, slated for June 15 and 16, this year, to establish mutual understanding between as many States as possible on a comprehensive, just and lasting peace in Ukraine.

‘Discussions will focus in particular on the various peace plans already proposed,’ a statement issued by the Swiss Foreign Minister and former President, Ignazio Cassis, and copied to the Ghana News Agency (GNA), noted.

According to the Swiss Foreign Minister, the time had come to put the culture of dialogue to work for world peace.

‘Even when voices are silenced and weapons take their place, we believe that dialogue has its place…’

The United Nations, as of July 31, 2023, reported that
some 26,015 civilians had been gravely affected in Ukraine since the war commenced two years ago, with 9,369 people killed and 16,646 others injured.

The Swiss Foreign Minister underscored the need for stakeholders to pool their strengths, ideas and visions of the world, however different they may be.

‘The war in Ukraine has had worldwide ramifications. It has spread far beyond the continent of Europe, lighting a fuse before a powder keg capable of turning the whole world upside down.

‘Africa, for example, has suffered its immediate consequences with a steep increase in staple food and fertilizer prices.

‘Whether the war results in food shortage, an attack on territorial sovereignty, a nuclear threat, an impediment to freedom of navigation or a violation of international humanitarian law, its consequences and risks are felt wherever we live on the planet,’ the statement said.

The Swiss Foreign Minister indicated that Ghana had an opportunity to shape this Conference from its specific perspective and cont
ribute significantly by making its voice heard.

Generally, the event will focus on subjects of global interest, such as food safety, freedom of navigation, nuclear safety and humanitarian aspects, including prisoner exchanges.

‘This initiative to end the war in Ukraine can only be followed by concrete and effective action if there is discussion at the highest political level on how Russia can be involved in such a process,’ the Swiss Foreign Minister noted.

Money for DYI was not from TBG but FASL – Witness


Mrs Sylvia Lawson, former Chief Finance Officer (CFO) of DYI, a subsidiary of the Beige Group (TBG), says the GHC6 million out of the GHC1.2 billion allegedly stolen by Michael Nyinaku was not transferred from TBG but from the First Africa Savings and Loans Limited (FASL).

Mrs Lawson is one of the witnesses in the trial of Michael Nyinaku, former Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the collapsed Beige bank.

In her evidence-in-Chief, the witness said DYI, a holding company of TBG, which was established to have oversight responsibility over TBG’s interest in commerce and logistics, depended on TBG, the mother company to finance its activities.

The former CFO said as for the GHC6b, it was transferred from FASL, another subsidiary of the TBG because TBG did not have enough funds to pre-finance its activities at the time, thus, TBG borrowed the money from FASL to advance DYI’s needs.

The transfer of the GHC6m to DYI was part of routine transfers made by TBG to DYI whenever it needed funds for its business and it
was released following a request to TBG, she explained.

Witness said DYI was a start-up business and she and her team had to spend time developing in house procedures that would assist in managing the investee businesses (the pharmacies and healthcare centres)

She noted that not one cedi of the GHC6b was ever paid to Nyinaku, the accused person.

He is being tried over an alleged theft of GHC1.2 billion from the bank, money laundering and fraudulent breach of trust.

Nyinaku has since denied the charges and he is on bail granted by Mrs Afia Serwah Asare-Botwe, an Appeal Court judge with oversight responsibility as a High Court judge.

The funds, disbursed in three tranches between April 20 and June 5, 2018, were invested in healthcare through Pillpoint (pharmaceutical company), to compliment Beigecare limited, also under TBG and health centres, she added.

The defence witness said both DYI and Pillpoint were customers of TBG, adding that when customers went to Pillpoint to buy drugs, Beige bank products (in
the name of DYI) were sold by the attendants and its financial affiliates.

The DYI strategised into investing in a chain of pharmacies and healthcare centres so that the outlets would enter agency banking relationship with the bank.

She said the agencies would now have teller implants that offered limited banking services to clients and provided customers acquisition to the bank.

Mrs Lawson said the bank teller implant services were 37 Military Hospital and Korle-bu Teaching Hospital.

The benefit of teller implant was to have inflows that were generated at that service point to constantly deposit in the entity’s account held with the bank, she continued.

Ayeh Paye urges Ghanaians to vote for Bawumia for continuity


Mr. Samuel Ayeh Paye, former Member of Parliament for Ayensuano in the Eastern Region has appealed to Ghanaians to vote Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia in the December polls to ‘continue the good works of President Akufo-Addo.’

He said a vote for Dr Bawumia would ensure that all uncompleted projects including school structures, hospitals and roads in the rural areas, under the current NPP Government would be completed to help in the development of the country.

Speaking in an interview with the Ghana News Agency, Mr Paye said the current New Patriotic Party (NPP) Government had many ongoing developmental projects for Ghanaians which might not be completed before December, hence the need to vote for Dr Bawumia to be able to complete them, in the next four years.

‘Dr Bawumia, will, for instance continue the Free SHS Policy which has given many poor but brilliant children the opportunity to further their education; education is key to the development of every country.’

He urged parents and guardians to en
rol their wards in school so that they would grow to become good future leaders.

Mr Paye earlier addressed members of the NPP, polling station executives and Unit Committee members.

Let’s discourage violence ahead of election 2024 – Peace Council to stakeholders


Madam Magdalene Kannae, a Board Member of the National Peace Council, has called on the public to avoid hate speeches and discourage violence in any form ahead of the 2024 general elections.

She said the 2024 election has different and special dynamics that needed to be understood.

She said the two major political parties (National Democratic Congress and New Patriotic Party) had keen interests and there was the need to work together to ensure that their activities did not mar the election and jeopardize the peace of the country.

‘We all know the stake up for the ticket. With the two big political parties wanting to come to power, one is saying that we want to break the eight and the other is saying it is ok, go and let us come, so it is like a tug of war with each of them pulling and wanting to win, and we all must avoid hate speeches and discourage violence towards the election,’ she stated.

Madam Kannae made the call when she addressed opinion leaders, youth groups, women, and other minority groups at
a two-day workshop on conflict resolution in Zebilla in the Bawku West District of the Upper East Region.

The engagement aimed at enhancing their capacities to detect and address the root causes of localized and spillover conflicts and vulnerabilities in their communities.

It formed part of the project dubbed ‘Enhancing Social Cohesion and Social Contract through Empowering Women and Youth in Northern Ghana’ being implemented by the Peace Council in Bawku West, Garu, and Bongo Districts of the Upper East Region. 

It is being funded by the United Nations (UN) Peace Building Fund through the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the United Nations Populations Fund (UNFPA). 

Mr. Labilla James Agogo, the Assemblyman of Sapeliga Electoral Area, said the capacity-building workshop was ‘top notch and revealing,’ stressing that the Peace Council and donors of the peacebuilding project ought to be applauded for inculcating in them the need for peace. 

‘They have made us understand and appreciate that th
e Fulbes are not our enemies, as we may perceive, and that alone means everything to us because of the seasonal problems we have with them.

‘From the look of things, we can live in harmony, and they can actually be helpful to us,’ he emphasised.
