Merlon was built to leverage the power of artificial intelligence to fight financial crime. Using state-of-the-art, context-aware natural language processing, Merlon uncovers risk that legacy rule-based adverse media solutions miss while significantly reducing false positives. As adverse media is a leading indicator of risk, identifying risk well before people are convicted or placed on watchlists, it is a key part of a proper CDD program. Merlon’s solution provides an instantly available SaaS platform for advanced KYC/AML investigations that enables analysts to focus on real risk.
