Napier expands AI-driven AML platform with plug-and-play and API offering

Rick Steves

Historically, teams or organisations looking for a quick and proven path to modern, AI-driven financial crime compliance had to sacrifice functionality for speed.

London-based anti-money laundering technology provider Napier has announced the expansion of its AML platform with two new service offerings: Napier Continuum Live and Napier Continuum Flow.

Napier Continuum Live introduces a hosted, plug-and-play option designed for organizations seeking rapid deployment and regulatory compliance. It encompasses licensing, hosting, and professional services within a single contract, along with bundled data for client screening, AI models, predefined configurations for swift implementation, and tailored rules for various sectors such as banking and wealth management.

Napier Continuum Flow is a headless API service for integrating AI-powered financial crime compliance intelligence into existing infrastructures. This offering allows for the integration of AI-driven alerts into current workflows, enhancing detection rates and reducing false positives while providing auditable AI insights.

Feature-rich compliance platform pre-configured to clients’ needs

Greg Watson, Chief Executive Officer at Napier, said: “I am excited to make enterprise-grade financial crime compliance accessible to all financial institutions with the launch of Napier Continuum Live. Historically, teams or organisations looking for a quick and proven path to modern, AI-driven financial crime compliance had to sacrifice functionality for speed. But with Napier Continuum Live, they are getting the full, feature-rich platform pre-configured to their needs. It’s a complete combination of our product and market expertise.

“We have seen an increasing number of digital-first customers in banking and payments looking to flow the intelligence Napier can provide around screening and monitoring into their own technology stacks. It is a real stamp of approval that many fintechs who pride themselves on their self-built platforms for their main value proposition, choose to partner with Napier for their compliance strategies”, Watson added.

Chuck Subrt, Director of the Fraud & AML Practice at Datos Insights, commented: “Financial crime compliance is an increasingly complex task especially as regulatory mandates continue to expand. It becomes vital that organisations without large teams or resources integrate innovative solutions. We work with financial institutions around the world and there is increasing demand for dynamic tools that have advanced analytics and intelligent automation embedded into their configuration and rules but with explainability and transparency. For financial institutions looking to transform their AML compliance technology, the new Continuum Live and Flow offerings from Napier represent a compelling option.”

Lyra Group deployed Napier Continuum

Last year, French payment solutions provider Lyra Group deployed Napier Continuum which minimizes risk by combining its full suite of big data technologies with AI in order to deliver a financial crime compliance technology capable of properly monitoring money laundering.

Lyra chose to replace its legacy tech with Napier’s advanced solution to meet the highest level of compliance standards, all while scaling up transaction volumes with speed and accuracy.

The new transaction monitoring solution from Napier now helps Lyra improve its compliance framework and has been implemented in two phases, initially using Napier’s existing transaction monitoring rules, before the two organizations collaborate on creating additional rules based on specific typologies tailored to Lyra’s risk profile.
