ComplyAdvantage is a company developing machine learning and big data based financial crime fighting software.

ComplyAdvantage is a London-based company that produces and sells anti-money laundering and compliance solutions to compliance professionals. The company develops software that helps fight financial crime.

It helps users identify risk in people and companies they work with globally through its machine learning and big data based products. It utilizes cloud based software to constantly updated financial crime data to power its software, which is in compliance with international financial and security regulations. ComplyAdvantage's tools include monitoring, data, screening, and on-boarding modules.


British entrepreneur Charles Delingpole founded ComplyAdvantage in 2014. Delingpole identified that “the fight against financial crime is being lost due to regulatory divergence more so than any other single issue in the industry”, and that “legacy software solutions, generally speaking, are too expensive and inflexible to accommodate agile business models and risks."

In October 2016, ComplyAdvantage received an $8.2 million Series A investment, led by Balderton Capital. Three years later in 2019, ComplyAdvantage received a $30 million Series B investment, led by Index Ventures and Balderton Capital.
