Aereve Recognised as Rising Star for Sanctions & Name Screening Solution 

Singapore/Hong Kong, 14 November 2023 – Aereve was recognised as a Rising Star in the PEPs, Sanctions & Name Screening Solution category in the 6th Regulation Asia Awards for Excellence 2023 at an in-person ceremony on 14 November 2023. 

This award recognises solutions that enable financial institutions to screen customers against lists of sanctioned individuals and entities, politically exposed persons (PEPs), and other relevant watchlists such as those maintained by law enforcement, regulators and other government agencies.  

Aereve was recognised for its E2AML E2KYC system, an advanced solution that leverages natural language processing (NLP) for screening and cross-border KYC assessments. The platform stands out for its ability to handle both Romanised and native Chinese characters (rather than transliteration) in name screening and transaction screening, enabling financial institutions to improve alert quality and risk management decision-making. The solution can also discount alerts automatically with blended language rules, screen news media and social media using native Chinese characters, and has been extended to also cover native Japanese Kanji. 

The solution provides a threshold analyser for financial institutions to use to test different threshold settings to fine-tune their screening systems and improve performance. In addition, Aereve enables firms to assess their English and Chinese characters’ fuzzy logic capabilities natively in their existing screening systems to benchmark performance against peers. These capabilities ultimately help to enhance the effectiveness of screening systems and lower false positive rates.  

Judges on the Regulation Asia awards panel said the solution’s emphasis on native Chinese character screening make it “stand out from other providers”. It is noted that a number of respectable financial institutions are already using the solution to “mitigate risks associated with conducting cross-boundary business in the Greater Bay Area”.
