Refinitiv and Napier to Help Combat Money Laundering with Improved Transaction Monitoring Solution

Sponsored by Businesswire

Refinitiv has partnered with Napier, a leading anti-money laundering
(AML) and intelligent compliance software provider, to offer a
next-generation transaction monitoring solution designed to help
corporates and financial institutions tackle money laundering and combat
emerging threats in financial crime.

The partnership offers Napier’s advanced analytics, automation and
transparent artificial intelligence, backed by Refinitiv’s World-Check
Risk Intelligence data, to meet an evolving range of AML compliance

“One of the most important challenges financial services firms face
today is protecting themselves from money laundering, external and
internal fraud and other financial crime-related activities,” said Phil
Cotter, Managing Director of the Risk business at Refinitiv. “Together,
Refinitiv and Napier will bring significant advancements in technology
combined with trusted risk intelligence to help organizations monitor
transactions and screen for suspicious financial activity.”

Napier’s AML solution consists of advanced artificial intelligence based
products to help customers combat evolving threats in financial crime
through transaction monitoring, customer and transaction screening. This
allows businesses to review transactions and identify suspicious
behaviour, perform client and entity screening according to current
policies and regulations, and manage the process through standard
workflow, analytics and rules-based assessment.

World-Check Risk Intelligence provides users with structured data
retrieved from reliable, reputable, public domain sources for risk
screening purposes. This information will help firms fulfill their due
diligence obligations and identify potential financial and related
crime, as well as politically exposed persons, sanctioned entities and
other areas of concern.

“The technology we’ve developed at Napier is changing the world of
compliance and few firms can claim to have developed their AML solution
with integrated AI from the outset to the same degree. We know
technology alone isn’t the answer – it’s also about how it is
implemented to underpin policy, process and procedure. This approach
lets us deliver on outcomes in line with the compliance challenges
companies face,” said Julian Dixon, Napier CEO. “Partnering with
Refinitiv is a huge endorsement of our work to create a truly
intelligent compliance platform and we’re excited about the response to
this new development.”

Using big-data architecture along with artificial intelligence and
machine learning, the Napier solution rapidly ingests and processes
hundreds of millions of transactions, client records and all reference
data. Users can define scenarios by means of an intuitive user interface
without the need for complex coding – and identify high-risk clients and
transactions while minimizing false positives.

In addition, it provides a full audit trail on all user-and
system-generated actions and accelerates AML processes throughout the
