Their AMLA (Anti-Money Laundering Assistant) detects money laundering in the financial markets, as opposed to conventional transaction monitoring AML tools. AMLA quantifies the risk of potential money laundering through a "follow the money" approach. Its cutting-edge models identify the key red flags of money laundering, such as uneconomic trading and sudden changes in behaviour. Using a proprietary algorithm, AMLA also reveals hidden connections between clients to uncover suspicious networks.

- Control focused with a good understanding of risks arising from transaction settlements.
