AML Compliance for Non-Financials

AML Compliance Software for
Non-Financial Institutions

Anti-money laundering (AML) compliance is not limited to financial institutions (FIs). Many non-FIs are still subject to certain AML requirements. 


Money laundering and the financing of terrorism occur in a variety of non-financial industries, including manufacturing, consulting, construction , real estate, and law firms. Understanding each of these industries’ specific AML requirements, risks and potential punishments is challenging. Alessa can help by providing your business with vital AML solutions to ensure your business is properly equipped to meet compliance standards and avoid penalties from AML regulators.


Alessa offers a variety of modules, as well as a holistic integrated AML solution for non-FI industries.

Know Exactly Who You Do Business With

The main area of risk for non-financials lies in not having a complete risk profile for clients, vendors and authorized agents. This can result in fraudulent activities occurring at the expense of your business,  potential compliance penalties from regulators and/or reputational damage and bad press resulting from association with sanctioned entities. 


It is vital for non-financials to have effective identity verification and customer due diligence (CDD) capabilities in place for both Know Your Customer (KYC) and Know Your Business (KYB) efforts, as well as robust screening solutions for sanctions, watchlist, politically exposed persons (PEPs) and adverse media.


Alessa provides AML compliance, fraud management and FCPA compliance solutions to meet specific non-financial industry requirements to ensure you remain compliant and risk-averse even with rapidly evolving regulations.
