Our History

From data quality to AML compliance

The early days of Innovative Systems  

Founded in 1968, Innovative Systems pioneered the use of complex matching technology for US political campaign fundraising. Over the next several decades, Innovative developed a range of data quality solutions that allowed for the profiling, cleansing, matching, and linking of data with great precision. This technology has been integral to many of the world’s leading banks.

The birth of FinScan 

In the late 1990s, Innovative saw the opportunity to apply its advanced data matching technology to address the growing need for AML compliance screening; thus, FinScan was born. In the aftermath of the tragic 9/11 attacks, when AML and CTF regulations were strengthened in the US, EU, and other countries around the world, FinScan was already an established screening solution, able to accurately match client files against government lists.

Revolutionizing AML operations

Since then, FinScan has helped companies globally develop more efficient AML programs that generate fewer false positives and enable better detection of true alerts. We strive to provide the best technology and services to our clients while innovating to stay ahead of evolving regulatory requirements.
