In the face of constantly evolving money laundering and terrorist financing threats, financial institutions need to implement robust risk assessment systems AML-CFT. However, traditional manual processes are often time-consuming, inefficient and inflexible.

Introducing AP Scoring: an Augmented Intelligence solution for optimized risk assessment AML-CFT .

AP Scoring revolutionizes risk assessment AML-CFT by using powerful algorithms to analyze customer data and financial transactions. This automated approach enables real-time, dynamic risk assessment, guaranteeing better identification of at-risk customers.

The concrete benefits of AP Scoring for your financial institution :


Know Your Customer(KYC): Know Your Customer is the process of verifying the identity and integrity of customers. European regulations require this verification in order to prevent corruption, money laundering, tax fraud and the financing of terrorism (AML-CFT). Changes in the regulatory framework (EBA, Sapin 2, AML-CFT, etc.) require certain institutions to extend their Know Your Suppliers(KYS) program.

AML-CFT The fight againstmoney launderingand terrorist financing. With the constant evolution of regulations, this has become a major concern for companies, which are subject to heavy fines in the event of non-compliance, and can engage the criminal liability of company directors.

  • Before entering into a business relationship: obligation to identify the " Beneficial Owner"; even for an occasional customer, and to screen the lists of Global/Regional Sanctions, Assets Freeze, Politically Exposed Person, RCA Relatives and Close Associates, Unfavorable Media, identification of countries and currencies under embargo...
  • Throughout the business relationship: the third-party repository must be constantly updated, and any change in information (such as an IBAN change, company closure or merger, PEP, RCA exposure, etc.) must lead to a new verification by the teams in charge, so daily screening is a must.
  • At the end of the business relationship: once the Ultimate Beneficiary's account has been closed, all related documents and information must be archived for a period of 5 years.

An anti-corruption or AML-CFT includes a preventive procedure to assess the integrity of third parties. The aim of this assessment is to guard against the risks of a breach of probity to which an organization is exposed by its relationship with a third party, be they customers, suppliers and service providers, intermediaries, subcontractors, holders of public contracts, concessionaires, delegatees, beneficiaries of subsidies, users, partners, etc., i.e. any natural or legal person with whom the company has a relationship and who may expose it to potential risks of a breach of probity. APScan enables you to identify sensitive persons: people under sanctions/freezing of assets (national, EU & international sanctions, Assets Freeze), politically exposed persons (PEP) and their relatives (RCA - Relative & Close Associates), reputational risks / negative press (AME - Adverse MEdia), Country risks (EmbargoVigilance), other open data lists... This detection is based on fuzzy logiclogic imposed by regulations. Identity verification is carried out prior toAPScan, using an internal tool where you have collected information on the third party and supporting documents. The more qualitative input data we have: Last name, First name, Gender, Date of birth, Country of birth, Nationality, SIREN... the more our filtering limits false positives. AP Scan integrates more than 70 parameters to precisely define the alerts to be excluded during sanctions / PEP / Adverse Media screening . APScan performs data enrichment:

  • Obtaining the Beneficial Ownersfor a legal entity: the Sapin II - Anti-corruption law, even requires that companies subject to the law check that the BEs declared by their Third Parties (customers, suppliers...) are the same as those referenced by the authorities,
  • Possibility of obtaining additional information about the legal entity,
  • Verification of the validity of the Orias number (Organisme pour le Registre unique des intermédiaires en assurance, banque et finance, an association under the law of 1901, under the supervision of the French Treasury).

No Code: No code facilitates the design and scalability of digital tools based on simple, intuitive visual interfaces. When it comes to compliance, every company sets up its own customized system, which is why it's so important to be able to rely on an application that can be easily and rapidly customized. There's no need for IT skills, no need to know how to code. Non-computer-savvy users can configure the various functions independently, just as they would with a simple tool like Excel! API : API stands forApplication Programming Interface. An API makes it possible to access an application's functions or data remotely, usually from another application, via a standard application interface. A request is sent to the target software, if possible respecting open standards. Saas : Software as a Service(SaaS) is a distribution model for web-hosted applications. The SaaS solution offers improved access to data from any networked device. It makes it easier to manage privileges, control data use and enable everyone to consult the same information at the same time, in complete security.

In addition to its stand-alone mode, APScan can also be integrated into an Information System (IS) thanks to its " Full API* " architecture.

Billing is based on the number of names filtered, regardless of the number of queries on a given name. 1 record is valid for the entire annual subscription, with an unlimited number of screenings. If you perform 5, 10 or 100 queries on the "Dupont" client, the billing remains the same... 1 unit.

APScan supports both standard and administrator users. It is also possible to define perimeters/areas per user. Example: You have several branches. Each user only has access to the files for his own branch. It is not possible to view the records of other agencies. You can set up profiles for each item of information/action in the application.

All user and/or system actions are traced and explained in the audit trail.

APScan offers a high degree of customization:

  • Intermediate workflow statuses * (for different review/escalation levels**, for example)
  • Reasons for " False positives"*** (providing a repository of reasons for disqualification, rather than "free text" comments = better reporting)
  • Follow-Up actions ****
  • etc...

* A workflow is a series of steps linked to the processing of data, and is the modeling and management of business processes. In its simplest definition, workflow is the modeling and management of the tasks to be performed and the various actors involved in carrying out a business or operational process. ** An escalation procedure is the process of transferring a customer request to a specialized person who can help. Escalation procedures are generally implemented when the customer's problem is too complex and requires specific expertise. *** False positives occur when a system mistakenly considers an innocuous transaction to be suspicious and flags it for verification. If the compliance officer could identify false positives earlier, he or she could get on with more important tasks. AP Scan can drastically reduce false positives. **** Follow-up literally means "to follow" or "to pursue". In fact, when we speak of follow-up strategies, we imply that we have already obtained a contact. Consequently, follow-up involves maintaining contact over time. This lead will be educated and progressively qualified until it becomes a customer.
