The company’s advanced AML solutions, data quality expertise, and advisory services empower organizations to navigate the complexities of regulatory landscapes with ease and confidence.

Industry trends in risk and compliance
The increased focus on risk and compliance management is evident in industry trends. Last year, 57% of organizations dedicated more time to risk compliance management — up from only 35% the previous year. Additionally, 70% of corporate risk and compliance professionals reported a shift from “check-the-box” compliance to a more strategic approach over the past few years. This shift highlights the growing importance of proactive and comprehensive risk management strategies in today’s business environment.

Growing focus on data quality, speed, and cost

FinScan’s decades-long background in data quality has resulted in customers who can confidently expect an 80% or more reduction in false positives. We also achieve enterprise-level data quality in less than 20% of the time and at 50% of the total cost of other providers. FinScan consistently demonstrates an average response time of 200 milliseconds per transaction, achieving SLAs for mission-critical operations such as real-time payments and credit card users onboarding at point of sale.
