InstantWatch is a revolutionary, modern and sophisticated platform that contains triggers, alerts and other features which empower you to stay ahead of the latest regulations and effectively identify and prevent money laundering and other financial crimes.

How does it handle the requirement of applying a risk-based approach?

The system performs an automatic risk calculation of customers, accounts, and transactions. Factors and properties such as nationality, country of residence, account type, and product are the basis for the risk analysis. The customers will automatically be placed into risk groups by the software.

How does InstantWatch AML find suspicious transactions and patterns?

The system’s automatic monitoring module performs advanced pattern analysis of each transaction. InstantWatch AML contains all alert types needed by financial institutions, according to the specified scenarios in the EU’s most recent AML Directive (6AMLD) and other laws/regulations. The user can configure alert triggers and set the thresholds in real-time.

Does InstantWatch AML handle KYC, Know Your Customer?

The AML module is integrated into InstantWatch KYC Screening, a quick and accessible internet service for screening customers. The system automatically checks customers against sanction/terrorist lists and PEP lists, both at registration and continuously. Checks against the US Ofac/SDN can also be provided. Please see our separate brochure for more info about InstantWatch KYC Screening. InstantWatch also handles KYC questions & answers which makes the investigation of alerts faster and easier.

Easy case management and documentation

The system issues an alert when a pre-defined scenario in an alert trigger is fulfilled. A single, or several, alerts are handled as a case that needs to be investigated, documented and sometimes reported. InstantWatch AML provides powerful tools to assist the user in this process.

Can InstantWatch handle huge numbers of accounts and transactions?
