“Our responsibility is to simplify our customers' access to international money. ThetaRay’s SONAR will enable us to expand our product services portfolio and improve customer service while improving our overall AML operations,” said Célia Pizzi, Chief Compliance Officer, of Travelex Bank. “ThetaRay is the only provider we’ve found that meets our high business standards by providing both AI-based transaction monitoring and sanctions screening within one platform. SONAR will provide higher efficiency and secure risk coverage, enabling new businesses and lines of revenue.”
“Travelex Bank represents a new generation of global institutions that is readying its money transfer and payment infrastructure for changing conditions. Travelex is a provider that looks to the future and prioritizes trust, confidence, and quality,” said Mark Gazit, CEO of ThetaRay. “We are very proud and excited to build this partnership with Travelex that will help fuel growth of the global economy.”
SONAR is based on an advanced form of AI called “artificial intelligence intuition” to make better decisions with no bias or thresholds, offering fintechs and banks a risk-based approach to effectively identify truly suspicious cases and create a full picture of customer identities including across complex, cross-border transaction paths. This enables the rapid discovery of both known and unknown money laundering threats, with a peerless 95% detection rate and 99% reduction in false positives compared to rules-based solutions.
