Affirmative Technologies

MINNEAPOLIS, MN, May 1, 2018 - Argos Risk®, a leading provider of Third-Party Risk Intelligence (TPRI) is pleased to announce its integration with Affirmative Technologies ACH RiskManager™. 

Affirmative Technologies provides cutting edge technology to their business partners and the financial industry with a robust ACH origination processing and a dynamic risk management platform.  George Bassous, CTO of Affirmative Technologies, said “Most financial institutions have a risk infrastructure that assumes the originator only has one banking relationship. With the integration between Argos Risk and Affirmative Technologies, we are automating the inclusion of external information into the risk assessments.” Bassous added, “Transaction analysis only exposes a problem after it has occurred. Our integrated compliance management solution not only allows monitoring but also furthers visibility into an originator’s risk profile.”  

Argos Risk’s AR Surveillance™ solution leverages more than 10,000 data points to assign risk scores to organizations’ key third-party relationships. It automatically generates and sends proactive alerts about significant changes to those companies; including executive changes, lawsuits, liens, mergers, acquisitions and other material news and events. AR Surveillance improves productivity and reduces manual review processes typically required for regulatory compliance management and due diligence.

"We are enthusiastic about our partnership and rolling out the next phase of compliance management with Affirmative Technologies. The tighter link benefits our mutual clients with a synergistic view of key risk metrics.” said Lori Frank, Argos Risk President and CEO.
