Who we are

AP Solutions IO is a new-generation RegTech company offering Web, SaaS/API applications to combat money laundering and the financing of terrorism (AML-CFT), anti-corruption and export control.

Complying with current or future regulatory requirements is necessary, but extremely complex, costly and often time-consuming. A compliance tool worthy of the name must provide essential functionalities to enable effective validation of the entire AML* compliance system, and in particular the Know Your Customer* and transaction monitoring* measures imposed on companies.

*AML (Anti-Money Laundering) regulations are broad and far-reaching, covering all financial flows, regardless of border or time. In the European Union, its equivalent is the Fight against Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing (AML-CFT). The Know Your Customer(KYC) process involves 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. Changes in the regulatory framework (EBA, Sapin 2, AML-CFT, etc.) require certain institutions to extend their knowledge of their suppliers (Know Your Suppliers - KYS). Transaction screening is an obligation AML-CFT aimed at checking that the customer's transaction is not subject to international sanction (counterparty under sanction) or trade embargo (restriction of activity for certain countries).

The founders of AP Solutions IO, historical experts in AML compliance issues, have observed that most of the solutions available on the market are not in line with the day-to-day needs of companies, in terms of :

  • Productivity (user needs),
  • Traceability & Explicability (regulators' needs),
  • Fluidity & Speed of suspicion clearance (business needs).

...too complex to install, use and administer, these often incomplete tools are, in fact, reserved for financial experts and inaccessible to Intermediate-Sized Companies (ME) and Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMES).

They effectively assist regulated organizations to handle 100% of legal requirements more efficiently, more cost-effectively, with greater flexibility and adaptability to recurring changes in regulations & corporate Information Systems.
