Financial Crime Investigations and Anti Money Laundering software for Banking

Videris transforms the efficiency and effectiveness of AFC and AML investigations by helping investigators to collect from and understand the widest range of relevant information.

AFC investigations require access to the maximum relevant data, and the technology to quickly make sense of it. Commercial databases and internal information are critical - but, without access to the live internet, investigations are hugely constrained.

Overcoming AFC and AML investigation challenges

The cost of AML errors is growing. Failure to prevent money laundering can lead to huge fines, as well as reputational costs. At the same time, deadlines for reporting suspicious activity are getting shorter. 

AML Compliance isn’t enough. As techniques for money laundering evolve, database cross-checks aren’t enough to stop it. Analysts need a real understanding of their subject and the context of their investigation.

Open source information is expanding. The amount of information in publicly available sources is constantly growing and can help you to develop a full understanding of an individual. Failing to use this public information is hard to defend to regulators.

Examples of poor practice: “Relying exclusively on commercially-available PEP databases and failure to make use of available open source information on a risk-based approach”
