Investing in global fight against financial crime
According to the United Nations, approximately US$2 trillion is laundered globally each year. One of our recent investments is working to fight against this financial crime by transforming the way it’s being detected.
ComplyAdvantage develops artificial intelligence driven technology for some of the world’s largest banks and enterprises. This cutting-edge technology helps neutralize the risk of financial crime, such as money laundering, terrorist financing, and corruption.
What’s the connection between fighting financial crime and your pension?
Financial crime is growing more sophisticated every year, and external risk indicators are becoming harder to spot. ComplyAdvantage is well positioned for this rapid growth, and a great addition to our portfolio of disruptive companies.
Their risk data and detection technology includes a proprietary database derived from millions of data points, providing real-time insights across sanctions, watchlists, politically exposed persons, and negative news. It’s changing the way businesses manage their risk obligations and prevent financial crime.
For example, COVID-19 has created challenges for government and financial institutions. They’re navigating changes in transaction patterns and managing new levels of risk associated with large amounts of pandemic-relief funds.
ComplyAdvantage’s proprietary database and technology suite improve how these institutions screen and monitor client transactions. They also help reduce the dependencies on manual review processes and legacy systems.
