The addition of Sentinels will help the firm’s clients to strengthen their due diligence process by enhancing KYC monitoring with the help of rich KYC profiles and client behavioural data.

Fenergo CEO Marc Murphy said: “Our shared goal of aiming to solve the increasing compliance and operational challenges facing financial institutions made Sentinels an ideal fit.

“By adding transaction compliance to our existing client onboarding and product origination solutions, financial institutions can monitor and review client behaviour and identify risks on an ongoing basis. This blended approach to financial crime makes us perfectly placed to address the rising compliance challenges faced by financial institutions more efficiently.”

Fenergo will support Sentinels to expand globally and enhance its ability to cater to the needs of larger financial firms.

Sentinels founder and CEO Joost Houten said: “The combined force of Fenergo and Sentinels will ensure leading financial institutions and the fintech disrupters are best equipped to navigate the complex regulatory environment and fight financial crime.”

Fenergo set up its Private Banking and Wealth Management division in 2018 to offer value-added CLM services to its financial institution clients.
