AML Investigations / EDD


Centralize and accelerate AML investigations, screening and EDD

Arachnys Navigator helps you drive confidence in policy adherence and reduce overheads by accelerating and automating data-hungry investigations.



All financial institutions struggle with the challenges of understanding who their customers and counterparties really are.

Different types of investigations require different types of data, and existing platforms struggle to manage complex policies across many geographies, languages and scripts.

Building an audit trail is time consuming, and information cannot be reused between teams, leading to duplicative effort and regulatory risk.
