Xapien joins the NayaOne Marketplace

Xapien Social Media N1 Partnership

We’re thrilled to announce we’ve joined the NayaOne Tech Marketplace. This means we’re now accessible to a range of financial institutions to discover and evaluate through NayaOne’s Sandbox-as-a-Service platform.

NayaOne provides access to synthetic datasets, a tech marketplace and a digital sandbox to discover, evaluate and scale third-party technologies to production to build proofs-of-concepts in 4-6 weeks. Our solution automates the otherwise manual elements of any enhanced due diligence process and will help financial institutions and large corporations alike gain early insights on any customer, partner or supplier.

It’s currently difficult, expensive, and time-consuming for organisations to gather meaningful and relevant information on individuals they do business with. Existing risk and compliance tools rely on data sets and cover things like ID Verification, Peps, Sanctions and watchlist checks. All of these are helpful for tick-box compliance, but don’t give you any answers to the more nuanced question of “should I do business with this person”.

For that, banks and FIs would traditionally have a choice: either rely on manual research (in-house or outsourced) which costs significant time and money or bear the risk of onboarding someone without fully knowing if they have hidden risks. Xapien automates the manual research process by researching across the entire indexed internet, and delivering a concise, comprehensive report – just like a human would produce but at incredible speed. Banks and FIs can check their AML risks and get a nuanced understanding for their client’s holistic online profile to add more value to the customer journey. This is a priority because firms seeking to do international business are facing a perfect storm for three reasons.

  1. Emerging ESG considerations present complicated and nuanced risks.
  2. There is a continuing explosion in publicly available information and ever-increasing regulation.
  3. There is a global economic downturn. This creates an increasing need for organisations to really ‘know’ their third parties, including customers, suppliers, donors, applicants and investors.

Founded by technology experts with decades of experience in intelligence and financial crime, Xapien uses cutting-edge artificial intelligence and natural language processing technologies to emulate the complex process of human-led research, and report writing. Xapien is designed to increase efficiency and drive down costs enabling FIs to focus on more valuable work.

We’re transforming how organisations understand who they’re doing business with enabling them to answer nuanced questions that stem from regulators and the wider public (around ESG risks and more) at speed and scale, to take advantage of the explosion in publicly available information. Banks need support to accelerate their internal process by using different Gen Ai tools to comply with their own financial, and non-financial reporting, to stay ahead of corporate innovation.

Our solution delivers:

  • Xapien’s AI goes beyond watchlist screening, scouring the length and breadth of the internet reading and analysing millions of sites, records and articles on your behalf. Truly know your customers, delivering more value to them and your organisation.
  • Major efficiencies during customer and supplier onboarding, meaning that you can onboard more customers faster and more cost-effectively. Customer quote: ‘With Xapien a day’s worth of research takes 12 minutes.’
  • Our customers report that compliance is now the business enablement department, rather than the business prevention department. This is down to the depth of content that Xapien can provide at speed. This information can now be provided to the sales team even before they have met a prospect, allowing them to drive deeper relationships with prospects faster and unlock valuable business opportunities.

Xapien has been integrated into the NayaOne marketplace to support financial institutions in creating reports and analysis based on complex data. It aids FIs in automating the manual research process by researching across the internet, and delivering background research on companies and individuals for risk, regulatory and reputational purposes to support KYC and KYB usecases. Xapien solutions now can be discovered and tested via NayaOne’s Sandbox-as-a-Service.

Our partnership with NayaOne will help to establish us as a leading Fintech-as-a Service provider. Our listing on NayaOne’s Sandbox-as-a-Service Platform provides an invaluable channel for regulated firms to reap the benefits of Xapien’s AI-generated due diligence reports. We look forward to collaborating with the NayaOne team and marketplace customers as we scale our solutions and address new use cases to support bank-fintech partnerships to drive innovation.
