Why SBS

Thinking ahead of the risks. That’s what we do every day.

For nearly two decades, Safe Banking Systems (SBS) has been helping clients identify, assess and manage risk across the enterprise. Our suite of innovative anti-money laundering and compliance solutions deliver unparalleled accuracy and efficiency to global financial institutions and other organizations in their fight against financial crime.

With SBS as a trusted partner, you’ll be able to tackle the challenges of know your customer (KYC), customer due diligence (CDD) and enhanced due diligence (EDD) with confidence. From list management to entity resolution to alert remediation services, we continually enhance our offerings to meet the needs of the organizations we serve and the changing regulatory environment in which they operate.

SBS supports clients from its headquarters in Mineola, New York, an office in the Empire State Building in New York City and a software development and operations center near Atlanta, Georgia.

We’re different

SBS is the gold standard for actionable AML intelligence. We didn’t get there by doing things like everyone else. The way we view, analyze and solve the problem of identifying and monitoring customer risk is as different as the methodologies we employ.

Our principles-based approach to entity resolution consistently outperforms traditional rules-based methodologies. The ability to expose unexpected links in large databases regardless of complexity and scope has earned SBS a reputation for accurate entity resolution and reliable sanctions, PEP and REP (reputationally exposed person) screening.

And the results speak for themselves.*

SBS leverages the latest technologies in its solutions using artificial intelligence and machine learning to help you tackle the anti-money laundering and KYC/CDD/EDD compliance pain points your organization faces every day. Our well-defined, proven processes uncover hidden risk while satisfying audit and regulatory requirements.

But great companies are not built on software alone.

Knowledgeable professionals with diverse backgrounds in global banking, securities, finance, software design, development, SWIFT, AML, analytics, compliance and project management make up the SBS team. Their subject matter expertise is backed by practical experience, providing both an advisor and trusted partner for implementing a fail-safe AML solution.
