MFS Africa implements ThetaRay’s solution to detect financial crimes

October 13, 2022


ThetaRay will provide MFS Africa its Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution, Sonar, which includes an artificial intelligence (AI) led anti-money laundering (AML) transaction monitoring and sanctions list screening.

It says the solution helps to “effectively identify truly suspicious cases” with a 95% detection rate and up to 99% reduction in false positives compared to rules-based solutions.
