ComplyAdvantage raises $50M in Series C funding round

Latest funding round brings the to-date investment to $88 million

ComplyAdvantage, a tech company transforming financial crime detection, has raised $50 million in a recent Series C funding round. The fundraising brings the total investment to date in the company to $88 million. 

Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan Board (Ontario Teachers’) led the funding, but existing investors Index Ventures and Balderton Capital also participated. The $50 million investment will assist the ComplyAdvantage product and market expansion throughout the US, Europe and Asia-Pacific region.

Using machine learning and natural language processing, ComplyAdvantage helps regulated organizations manage risk obligations and prevent financial crimes. To do so, the company’s proprietary database leverages millions of data points to provide real-time insights across sanctions, watchlists, politically exposed persons and negative news.

By reducing dependence on manual review processes and legacy databases by up to 80%, ComplyAdvantage improves how companies screen and monitor clients and transactions.

“ComplyAdvantage offers mission-critical technology solutions for combating financial crime and keeping pace with an ever-evolving regulatory landscape,” said Olivia Steedman, senior managing director, TIP, at Ontario Teachers’. 

“The company is well-positioned to continue its rapid growth as its powerful technology platform transforms the compliance and risk management process for its clients,” Steedman added.

The Ontario Teachers’ is one of the world’s largest pension plans with 207.4 billion Canadian dollars ($155.17 billion) in net assets and focuses on late-stage venture and growth equity investments in companies using disruptive technology.
