End-to-end trade monitoring and protection

Securing your trade business

There is increasing pressure on banks and financial institutions to manage and monitor the latest global trade-based sanctions. As these sanctions grow in terms of complexity and difficulty, banks and financial institutions need to be aware of the latest updates and best practice from the United States Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS), the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS), the Hong Kong Association of Bankers (HKAB) and the UK’s Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). The advanced Pelican Trade Compliance solution addresses the growing challenge of Trade Based Money Laundering - securing global trade, managing risks and protecting your reputation.

The Challenge
Trade finance departments need to achieve the highest level of compliance whilst maintaining the appropriate degree of operational efficiency. Procedures to screen for trade-based sanctions have relied on manual processes using watch-lists together with filter and noise word policies. Managing suspicious trading with these techniques is limited in terms of accuracy. Furthermore, they require large teams of operators to keep them up to date and manage the high rate of false positive results.Pelican’s aim is to remove the pain from the process and provide a solution that resolves the current screening limitations available in many of today’s trade compliance applications.

The Solution
Pelican provides an AI-powered complete end-to-end trade transaction cycle monitoring solution, leveraging the AI discipline of Natural Language Processing (NLP) to derive meaning and understanding across all trade instruments and messages.
