The private equity firm will gain a majority share in SmartSearch and work with the company to support its core markets and continued expansion following the release of its latest technology platform last year. SmartSearch founders and existing shareholders will retain a minority in the company.

Its AML verification platform conducts individual and business searches across UK and international markets with automated sanction, PEP, UBO and adverse media screening, and ongoing monitoring.

Mads Hansen, head of investments and managing and founding partner at Triple, adds: “This is Triple Private Equity’s first investment in SmartSearch, a market leader in GRC in the UK, a key investment space for Triple. The company has shown consistent growth and profitability and provides a high-quality software platform for its clients. We look forward to partnering with the SmartSearch team to pursue the company’s next stage of growth.”
