Reason #1

Fewest False Positives and False Negatives in the Industry

FinScan clients typically experience a 90%+ reduction in false positive alerts compared to their previous sanctions screening systems.

  • FinScan’s AI-based algorithm includes granular controls that allow you to configure your matching rules by risk level, customer data source, or any keywords or categories in the list database, making it easy to support your risk-based approach in a customized manner.
  • No need to choose between having too many false positives and potentially missing a real hit!

 Reason #2

Ability to Handle Bad Data

FinScan cleans and optimizes your data prior to AML screening to minimize false positives or unnecessary risk.

  • We realize that AML compliance teams don’t have time to deal with the organization’s bad data. FinScan will identify dummy data, fix inconsistent Dates of Birth or Country names, combine duplicate alerts for a single view, identify misplaced names in an unstructured database, identify Spanish materno vs. paterno last names, and much more.
  • With the bad data problem taken care of, you can focus on more important and highest risk cases.
  • “FinScan gave our compliance team significantly more control over the quality of our input data than our previous system was able to…” (Compliance officer at a Top 5 US Financial Institution).
