What data do we collect and how?

We are one of only a handful of proprietary AML data providers in the world. What separates us from the pack, however, is our advanced approach to data collection and refinement. We use the latest technologies in machine learning and information retrieval to acquire information from all major AML sanctions and government watchlists, along with thousands of government sites and millions of reputable negative news sources, faster and more effectively than the industry standard.

Proprietary data sourced from tens of thousands of structured and unstructured sources

70% false-positive reduction rate


How is that data made useful?

We combine entities that appear across lists into single profiles. Profile-based screening allows firms to apply simplified AML measures to lower-risk customers while subjecting higher-risk customers to an enhanced level of scrutiny. Our well-linked profiles are enriched with other identifying information, along with clear traceable source links and relations to other risk entities. The added flexibility to tailor your search per data source and balance both thoroughness and speed improves your operational efficiency and reduce false positives.


How will it improve my workflow?

All of our products are built API-first, meaning we offer seamless two-way integration into increasingly-automated business processes. With ComplyAdvantage, when there is a change in your customer’s risk status, you will simply be notified via a single API call. Not only that, but you are able to configure search profiles to monitor only the types of risks that are relevant to your business. For example, you can choose only to be alerted to certain types of adverse media or class of PEPs.
