Diasoft, Interfax develop solution to automate verification of bank customers, counterparties

Diasoft has automated comprehensive verification of customers and counterparties by parameters and lists available in the X-Compliance solution created by Interfax Group.

Thanks to integration with X-Compliance, Diasoft's "Verification by lists of suspicious countries, persons and organizations" software now provides mass automated verification of all of a bank's customers and transactions by global and Russian sanctions lists and watch lists (Russia, the United States, United Nations, European Union, United Kingdom, Canada, Switzerland, Japan, Australia and Ukraine), as well as by the list of companies subject to the "50% Rule."

Diasoft's head of Risks and Compliance, Andrei Simakov said that the "joint solution of Diasoft and Interfax makes it possible to save a great deal of bank employees' time on carrying out the necessary verifications, as well as avoid the risk of using incomplete or inaccurate information for decision making."

"We are now carrying out a pilot project to roll out the solution at a Russian bank in the top 25. As a result of the project, the bank will be able to verify customers by sanctions lists and lists of suspicious persons with minimal staff hours," Simakov said.

The "Verification by lists of suspicious countries, persons and organizations" software product is part of the Digital Q.Risk&Compliance platform. It was developed in microservice architecture on a modern technology stack, so it can be easily integrated with any IT landscape of a credit institution. If the bank already uses the X-Compliance service, the product's installation makes it possible to automate the process of customer verification directly in the IT system and reduce the time it takes to process large arrays of data.

"The current geopolitical and economic situation has increased banks' requirements for high quality products to monitor client transactions and assess sanction risks. The import-independent joint solution of Diasoft and Interfax will help solve these problems," Interfax Group Executive Director Vladimir Gerasimov said.
