A large international bank with a massive international base use Investigator in their Financial Intelligence Unit. With over 250 users worldwide, they used Arachnys tech after a compliance overhaul due to regulatory pressure. Divided between operational intelligence, client intelligence and strategic analysis, the bank operates in a large number of markets.
Investigator strengthens the team’s ability to investigate emerging market data, with real-time translation in local languages. The strength of Arachnys’ news coverage even led the client to provide coverage of Indonesian entities to the regulator which were previously unknown. The unit’s scope is now more systematic: the technology has enhanced their coverage, ensuring their investigations are comprehensive, ranging from thematic research to strategic analysis.
An investment group working in high-risk jurisdictions needed to find information on prospecting opportunities. They work on very short timescales, and incur significant risk should an entity go unchecked. In order to ensure that they can verify clients smoothly and with integrity, Investigator assists them in performing KYC checks in emerging markets with far greater speed and efficiency than they would manage with manual searches.
Arachnys consulted with their team of ten analysts from the start to bring them up to speed on the platform and ensured they hit the ground running. Previously they had relied upon data available in search engines, which proved insufficient and raised far too many false positives for their analysts. Conversely, profile-based checks failed to provide them with information where it was missing. Investigator gave them the depth and structure to perform corporate verification with confidence.
A team of fifty in a corporate investigations firm used Investigator to mitigate foreign exchange exposure. As the first line of research for any non-US market, import/export businesses rely on the salience of their intelligence. News coverage in Turkish, Malay, Mandarin, Russian and Azeri ensures that they have no blind spots in their emerging market investigations.
The team use Investigator’s unparalleled news media coverage to identify peaks in coverage, to understand where entities are being frequently mentioned and to uncover red flags with adverse terms, particularly useful in uncovering risks early on.
