Redefining financial crime compliance

to make the world a better place

As we considerably lag behind criminals seeking to commit financial crime, a new approach to bring into light real-world criminal behaviour collectively warrants a try. 

At Tookitaki, we have always believed that technology is for the greater good. With this conviction, the AFC Ecosystem was formed, and our single motto was to break silos and provide a platform where AFC experts across the globe can use their knowledge and expertise to build a safer society. 

The AFC Ecosystem includes our network of experts and provides a platform for the experts to create a knowledge base to share financial crime scenarios. This collective intelligence is the ability of a large group of AFC experts to pool their knowledge, data, and skills in order to tackle complex problems related to financial crime and pursue innovative ideas.

Our network of experts includes risk advisers, legal firms, AML specialists, consultancies, and financial institutions from across the globe.

The AFC Ecosystem is an innovative approach to tackling financial crime, inspired by the willingness to collaborate on common challenges of removing the information vacuum.

 

In addition to our AFC ecosystem, which is a first-of-its-kind community-driven initiative, we have Tookitaki’s Anti-Money Laundering Suite or AMLS for our customers. The AMLS is an operating system comprising of four modules and provides holistic risk coverage, sharper detection, and significantly fewer false alerts. It can be deployed in multiple environments including the public cloud, private cloud, and data centre.

Tookitaki’s AFC Ecosystem and the AMLS work in tandem and help our stakeholders widen their view of risk from an internal one to an industry-wide one across organizations and borders. Moreover, they can do so without compromising privacy and security.
