ComplyAdvantage, a global data technology company transforming financial crime detection, today announced the release of a new tool called ComplyTry™ enabling anyone to better understand the risk profiles of prospective customers using live sanctions, Politically Exposed Persons (PEPs) and adverse media data for free.
The cornerstone of a successful anti-money laundering (AML) program is not only thorough background checks, but also the context that surrounds each identity – people and/or businesses – and whether this context signals any form of illegal behavior, intent, history or association.
Compliance teams throughout the financial services industry are challenged daily to analyze, extract and validate identities that have elevated risk attributes with the ultimate goal of preventing financial crimes before they happen. Given the growing volume, velocity and complexity of financial crime, the task of identifying the potential for risk exposure through contextual analysis has become increasingly complex and time-consuming.
However, with advances in data and machine learning, ComplyAdvantage has optimized this laborious and lengthy process making it fast, accurate and free. With ComplyTry, anyone has the ability to search and assess risk signals that may surround an identity using the company’s real-time database of sanctions, watchlists, PEPs, adverse media and more.
Simply input the details and select the data sources you want and then press enter. Each result will be represented by a card that reveals a full and extensive profile with all relevant risk signals included.
