Acuminors’ financial crime database is being continually updated by our own Intelligence Team. Our experts leverage experience from law enforcement, government and academia across several jurisdictions and are supported by machine learning and natural language processing models. The financial crime database is structured into threats and each threat is broken down into the relevant countries, channels and financial products that can be misused in each case. To date, we have analysed more than 500 vetted sources, and over 100,000 pages and this is growing all the time.
