Financial transaction compliance made easy with Yantra

Share this post:

Yantra transformed into an award winning Fintech powerhouse. Yantra Financial Technologies was recognized as a “Company to Watch” as part of the 2016 FinTech Forward rankings released by American Banker and BAI.

By deconstructing and rebuilding technology infrastructure from the outside-in, Yantra produced a technology and modernization approach designed for rapid deployment and success.

The Yantra difference

Yantra logoBanks now conduct an exception-based post-transaction compliance after their batch, or end-of-day runs, are complete. The random sampling results in over 90% of the transactions during the business day not tested for compliance. So when banks want to step up and check larger volumes, their headcount and costs scale linearly.

The foundation for Yantra’s offering is a “compliance first approach.” The multiple automated steps and manual follow-up, if necessary, enable high-quality KYC checks. Also, 100% of transactions are risk scored in real-time for the bank to stop any non-compliant transactions in-flight. Yantra offers a highly scalable solution for the digital business with virtually no incremental costs with volume.
