Artesian enables the leading organisations to know sooner, know more & save time

Financial services organisations are struggling to meet the conflicting demands of Customer Experience, Risk Control and Compliance and the results of this seeming conflict of interests have been costly.

Whether in terms of customer satisfaction, inaccurate understanding of risk or regulatory fines, the costs are huge and growing.

ARCH brings comprehensive data and sophisticated rules together and puts the results in the hands of employees right at the beginning of the business process.

Company Screening

ARCH accesses an organisation’s chosen data sources as well as globally available unstructured data and applies custom policies to that combined data in the form of multi-dimensional rules.

These rules ensure that all available data is screened and interpreted based on the company’s own policies.

Any potential issues can be clearly flagged through a browser-based interface or as data to be ingested by other systems via API.


24/7 Tracking and Monitoring

Effective risk and customer management requires companies to move to an event driven approach to customer monitoring instead of performing periodical checks during the life of a customer relationship.

Furthermore, these events should give the earliest possible view of an actual or impending risk event. ARCH is always on, monitoring structured and unstructured data sources and applying rules to any matches in order to categorise the level of review required.


Let's get started

Pre-emptive Screening

Banks are struggling to meet the competing requirements of excellent customer service, accurate risk assessment and regulatory adherence, particularly in Commercial Onboarding. Often Relationship Managers aren’t aware of the risks that the onboarding team will find. ARCH flags any risks that will be found later and enables the RM to access missing data in the sales process rather than at the point of onboarding.

True Early Warning Indicators

Portfolio risk management has long been stuck in the rut of knowing too little, too late and even what is ‘known’ is often a false positive. ARCH enables banks to access unstructured sources of data that were previously unavailable to them. By accurately categorising the data to review, impending risk events can be acted upon and mitigated before they have occurred enabling the bank to avoid the change in IFRS9 stage.

Event Driven Reviews

Banks are in the habit of time interval-based KYC checks, with the intervals driven by risk categories. This means that a change may occur that requires a review according to regulation, but which may not be reviewed for several years. ARCH is always on, applying policy to all available structured and unstructured data sources so that when a change occurs the appropriate level of action can be flagged and taken, be it a simple update of a database or a full client review.

Intelligent Automation for Underwriters

Commercial lines underwriting is both an art and a science. ARCH automates the science with a combination of data and sophisticated rules, bringing efficiency, consistency and accuracy so that underwriters can focus on underwriting. Decisions can be recorded whilst both justified in the future and used for decision analysis and pricing optimisation.

Augmenting Risk Awareness

A vast amount of data pertaining to risk exists in unstructured format on the Internet and often remains untapped by underwriters and brokers. ARCH uses assisted machine learning to finely categorise that data according to the predetermined definitions of an insurer and flags any existing risks according to policy. This prevents the need to search the Internet hoping to find risk needles in data haystacks.

‘Know Your Customer’ Before You Quote Them

Regulation requires insurers and brokers to carry out KYC checks in order to comply with the fight against financial crime. The industry is in the habit of making these checks after a policy has been written, regularly leaving an MLRO in a difficult position. ARCH enables a KYC check to be carried out comprehensively, according to the MLRO’s chosen data sources and rules, at the point of first customer engagement. This means that appropriate decisions can be made before a quotation has been issued.

We are excited to work with Artesian to take such a revolutionary tech-driven approach to bringing compliance and KYC into the forefront of our business and commercial banking activities. Artesian will help us know more, know sooner and save valuable time we can invest in building great customer relationships.

With the changing nature of risk during these uncertain times, the flexibility and configurability of Artesian’s Platform enables QBE to be proactive rather than reactive to changes in data for client assessment. Critically, Artesian gives us unique access to news media and unstructured data that was previously very difficult to assess.
