Smart screening technology for effective AML compliance

Name matching is the real challenge in Sanctions & AML compliance. Transliteration issues, nicknames, honorifics, and spelling errors are some of the factors that make name screening a challenge. This cannot be solved with simple fuzzy algorithms.

Our industry-leading screening technology is based on the latest research and achievements in Natural Language Processing (NLP) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) used by organisations such as Amazon, LinkedIn, and U.S. Homeland Security.

This technology helps reduce false positives significantly, while making sure that no real matches slip through the cracks.

Basic – OFAC, US Department of Treasury Sanction List


​The Treasury Department has a long history of dealing with sanctions. Dating back prior to the War of 1812, Secretary of the Treasury Gallatin administered sanctions imposed against Great Britain for the harassment of American sailors. During the Civil War, Congress approved a law that prohibited transactions with the Confederacy, called for the forfeiture of goods involved in such transactions, and provided a licensing regime under rules and regulations administered by Treasury.


The Office of Foreign Assets Control ("OFAC") of the US Department of the Treasury administers and enforces economic and trade sanctions based on US foreign policy and national security goals against targeted foreign countries and regimes, terrorists, international narcotics traffickers, those engaged in activities related to the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, and other threats to the national security, foreign policy or economy of the United​ States.

OFAC Sanctions List

OFAC publishes lists of individuals and companies owned or controlled by, or acting for or on behalf of, targeted countries. It also lists individuals, groups, and entities, such as terrorists and narcotics traffickers designated under programmes that are not country specific.
