Built on Finastra’s industry-leading core technologies and harnessing an extensive catalog of open APIs, ComplyAdvantage has developed an anti-money laundering solution with an advanced approach to data collection and refinement. ComplyAdvantage uses the latest technologies in machine learning and information retrieval to acquire information faster and more effectively than the industry standard. It offers screening and monitoring against the latest sanctions and watchlist data. Coverage includes every global list, including OFAC, UN, EU, HMT, MAS, DFAT, and thousands of governmental, regulatory, and law enforcement lists. 

Offering hyperscale risk management solutions designed for high growth companies, ComplyAdvantage’s robust monitoring, update and assurance processes monitor thousands of anti-money laundering lists concurrently in real-time. In addition, the company’s Transaction Screening solution identifies sanctions risk in all parts of the payment message including unregulated free reference text, by screening against a consolidated, near real-time database. The 24/7 automatic monitoring captures updates in the shortest time possible and alerts financial institutions when there is an anti-money laundering risk update. It comes pre-integrated to Finastra’s Fusion Essence and Fusion Global PAYplus for faster deployment.

“With global financial crime compliance spending now exceeding $100B annually, our clients are seeking the most efficient and innovative solutions possible to minimize risk and reduce the cost of compliance,” said Vincent Pugliese, SVP and General Manager of Platform at Finastra. “As Finastra cores generate and process the transactions that must be compliant, our customers are eagerly seeking pre-integrated solutions to meet these pressing needs.  We welcome ComplyAdvantage to the FusionFabric.cloud platform as part of our wider solution set for financial crimes compliance and regtech.” Using Finastra’s open APIs, developers can create solutions that address business challenges across the financial services spectrum, including retail banking, payments, transaction banking, corporate banking, lending, treasury and capital markets.
