Sentinels (Financial Risk & Compliance)

The financial ecosystem has been facing substantial changes. Financial institutions are struggling to meet the requirements of regulators, and current anti-money laundering solutions are falling short of their needs. At the root of financial crime are felonies involving drugs, human trafficking and terrorism.

But there’s hope! Evolving technology, which includes AI and machine learning offer the promise to effectively catch criminals. The Sentinels team is building cutting-edge software products to help financial institutions manage risk, meet pressing regulatory requirements, reduce false positives, maximize customer experience, and fight financial crime.
