K2 Intelligence Financial Integrity Network has changed its name to K2 Integrity to reinforce its efforts to assist customers in risk, compliance, investigations and monitoring.
The company said Nov. 10 the corporate name change is also intended to further underscore K2 Integrity's values, purpose and mission of securing its client base's operation, reputation and economic standing.
"The name K2 Integrity reinforces the principles the corporate investigations industry was founded on back in 1972: integrity and transparency," said K2 Integrity Chairman Jules Kroll.
Jeremy Kroll, president and CEO of K2 Integrity, noted the economic risks, cyber threats, financial crimes and other business corners that affect the industry and touted the company's work of "driving value and providing a sense of certainty" as it helps clients address financial integrity issues.
In September 2019, K2 Intelligence merged with Financial Integrity Network to expand its investigations, intelligence and regulatory compliance offerings. "We found a partner with a deep-rooted sense of mission and purpose, something that resonated with our legacy guiding principles and values," the chief executive commented.
The K2 Integrity business leadership team is composed of Juan Zarate, chief strategy officer; Robert Brenner, chief legal officer; Tom Bock, co-head of the expanded financial crimes risk management business; and other executives.
"Whether we are uncovering fraud within an organization … or making sure a financial institution knows its customers and the origins of its transactions, maintaining the integrity of our clients' operations is our ultimate goal," said Brenner.
