Frictionless AML

Surface the content that matters, reduce duplication, manual effort and increase data re-use.

Arachnys accelerates anti-money laundering investigations by providing the best global KYC and AML data. Real-time registry and adverse media connections allow you to keep regulators happy while reducing refresh costs and improving the customer experience.

The Problem


Global non-compliance for KYC/AML at global financial institutions top $36 billion in penalties since 2008, with AML fines in 2020 already surpassing 2019.

Banks are still relying on huge compliance teams to manually deal with AML remediation backlogs and ongoing monitoring issues.

Financial institutions struggle with manual data discovery, which is slow, laborious and can rely heavily on individuals’ knowledge of local source data, creating inconsistency and risk.
