QuantaVerse is the emerging leader in data science-powered risk reduction solutions, purpose-built for identifying financial crimes. Utilizing proprietary data science algorithms including artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning and big data technologies, QuantaVerse integrates and filters institutional data and related external data – including public Internet data, unstructured deep web data, as well as government and commercial datasets – to significantly improve AML, KYC and BSA compliance and prevent money laundering and the crimes it supports. For more information, contact QuantaVerse at (610) 465-7320.
Legacy AML technology such as transaction monitoring systems (TMS) have little to no ability to identify and assess risk created by shell companies. And while policies, procedures, and processes, if applied correctly, can protect financial institutions from becoming conduits for some fraction of money laundering, terrorist financing, and other financial crimes, identifying shell company risk continues to be elusive.
On the final day of the FIBA conference, QuantaVerse Founder and CEO, David McLaughlin, participated on the “Customer Profiling, Use of Innovative Technologies in Onboarding and Risk Assessment” panel. David Schwartz, President and CEO of FIBA, set up the panel discussion by emphasizing the importance and impact that innovative technologies have on risk assessment and the customer onboarding process.
