Acuris Risk Intelligence to integrate its world-class database into Quantifind’s AI platform
 
London, 13 May 2019 – Acuris Risk Intelligence, a trusted and independent provider of data intelligence for anti-money laundering, anti-corruption and cyber security professionals, today announces its partnership with technology company Quantifind, to boost its anti-money laundering (AML) investigations.
 
In collaboration with Acuris Risk Intelligence, Quantifind’s clients will have access to a high-quality data source, KYC6, Acuris Risk Intelligence’s online portal. This would enable Quantifind to provide compliance teams with key capabilities of individuals via search, on-going monitoring, sanctions and Enhanced Due Diligence (EDD) reports.
 
Quantifind’s applications put AI into practice by automatically enriching AML and fraud alerts with signals of risk from inside and outside of the bank. At a time when false positive transaction-based Alerts are pushing compliance costs higher, a Quantifind implementation can help realize a 30% efficiency gain.
 
 “Thanks to this partnership with Acuris, we are adding a global, trusted and high-quality source of Publicly Exposed Persons data to our existing portfolio of data sources. This is a critical step in our journey to bring our financial crime applications to the market and help financial institutions improve the efficiency of the AML and KYC investigations,” says Adam Mulliken, SVP of Analytics and General Manager for Quantifind’s Financial Crimes business line.
 
“We are delighted to partner with Quantifind and help them enhance their AML investigations with the integration of our data into their systems. Their sophisticated AI techniques will work alongside our world-class data to provide clients with accurate and timely information,” states Joel Lange, Managing Director, Acuris Risk Intelligence.
