Arachnys Partner With GD Financial Markets to Accelerate KYC Remediation

Strategic partnership to bring a tactical blend of people and technology to accelerate managed services and KYC remediation for financial institutions and other high-risk industries, with rapid deployment and minimal disruption.

GDFM & Arachnys

Arachnys, the market-leading platform that accelerates onboarding for financial institutions with intelligent KYC and AML data, announces a strategic partnership with GD Financial Markets (GDFM).

This new partnership takes a pragmatic approach to delivering business consulting, managed service and remediation solutions to financial services and real estate and other high-risk industries that are suffering from operational bottlenecks and KYC and AML backlogs. Arachnys will be the data and technology partner to power GDFM's pool of experienced paralegals and compliance analysts, allowing financial institutions to achieve compliance at an acceptable cost without sacrificing quality and control.

Arachnys and GDFM offer a "frictionless KYC & AML" approach which is made up from unparalleled KYC & AML global data sources, a high level of automation, and straight through processing (STP), ultimately reducing many of the friction points associated with traditional KYC processes.

Whilst both parties are free to work with other providers (to allow for the inevitable flexibility required by some clients), Arachnys and GDFM are committed to delivering programmes of continuous improvement as well as high standards of quality assurance and control. This includes leveraging Arachnys' ability to supply accurate and transparent files with a full audit history.

Clarisse Mallem, GD Financial Markets Head of Financial Crime Compliance Practice, said: "Arachnys are the perfect technology partner for GDFM to complement our expertise and proven consultative approach. We can identify remedial actions and approaches across the spectrum of people, process, systems and governance, and can now offer the technology and data to underpin and accelerate KYC digitisation and transformation."

David Buxton, Arachnys CEO & Founder added: "We're thrilled to be able to partner with GD Financial Markets for this joint offering. Our new API-driven architecture means we can offer faster, cheaper and more effective KYC managed services which blend perfectly with consultancies who regularly assist banks in their interactions with regulators."
