London – November 2019
Trapets AB, a global provider of Anti-Money Laundering and Trade Surveillance solutions, today announces that Modulr, the Payments-as-a-Service API platform, has successfully implemented InstantWatch AML, its automated risk-based AML system.
Having selected Trapets AB’s InstantWatch solution, Modulr is already benefiting from real-time identification of potential cases of money laundering across its payment operations. Moreover, Modulr now has all the data and tools to investigate these cases immediately and manage potential money laundering using the automatic and holistic risk-based approach that InstantWatch offers. Risks are calculated using a weighted risk model that is extremely configurable in order to support Modulr’s type of businesses.
Such is the level of automation within the solution that InstantWatch incorporates a whole library of early warning alerts that facilitate detection of possible instances of money laundering. There are alert triggers that cover amounts, number of transactions, specific patterns, the consideration of clients’ historical patterns, calculating individual thresholds per customer or account, considering the risk of a customer/account etc. All alert triggers define a scope of what to monitor. An example of scope is which customers, accounts or transaction types should be monitored.
Martin Threakall, Chief Operating Officer at Modulr, said: “In our bid to become the world’s leading digital alternative for wholesale and commercial payments, the transaction volumes that run through our systems are ever increasing. Therefore the automation of transaction monitoring using the Trapets InstantWatch AML system is essential for us. We have also benefited from Trapets’ expertise in this area to ensure we are using best practice and providing industry leading services.”
Gunnar Wexell, Chairman at Trapets AB, said: “We are delighted to have delivered our InstantWatch AML Transaction monitoring service to Modulr. The fact that Modulr and many other businesses globally are now using our technology to adopt a risk-based approach to fighting money laundering means that they are employing best practice in the eyes of regulatory bodies around the world”.
