Payments firm with AML compliance program

AML Compliance
for Payment Firms

Moving at the speed of change

It’s time to be proactive. The payment processing industry is growing exponentially and is expected to surpass $146 billion by 2030. This explosive growth has attracted both bad actors and the attention of regulators. Payment processors are included as part of the Enablers Act and compliance regulations will continue to increase.


Regulators and bank partners need you to provide safe, protected payment processes that meet or exceed compliance regulations. Customers expect you to do it with speed, accuracy, and no service disruptions. You need a powerful AML solution built to work for payment firms.
