Themis Secures £3.1 Million Funding for Financial Crime Platform

Subscribe to our newsletter

Themis, provider of a digital financial crime platform, has secured £3.1 million in its latest Pre-Series A funding. The London-based company raised £1.7 million in a seed round in 2021, and will use the funds to continue development of its automated due diligence platform, Themis Search and Monitoring, that was released in 2020.

The platform uses AI and ML technology, powered by threat-based data, research and intelligence, to detect potential links to financial crime. Its AML software conducts screening, KYC onboarding, risk mapping, enhanced due diligence and automated monitoring to make sure users are not inadvertently dealing with companies, entities or individuals with criminal records, links to serious or organised crime, or other forms of financial crime.

Noting that for every search, Themis screens over 505 million data points, CTO Matt Deacon explains: “We have developed a search engine that enables firms to find out if clients, suppliers or any other people or companies used have criminal records or any links to illicit activity. The platform can tell you if these entities are on international sanctions lists, own or are directors of any companies or offshore vehicles anywhere around the world, have political exposure and influence, have adverse media about them, or are linked to any criminal associations.”
