“Our partnership collaboration with Element AI represents the next step in our AI transformation at HSBC.”-Andre Cronje

The partnership comes as the third of Element AI’s customer deals that have been announced this year. Notably, all three have been in the financial services sector. In February, the Montreal-based company announced a partnership with the National Bank of Canada to improve cybersecurity for the bank. The startup also announced a collaboration with Gore Mutual Insurance in April, to integrate Element AI’s Underwriting Partner software with insurance company’s underwriting practice.
