“It’s great to count a company as exciting as Weavr among our valued customers,” said Tobias Schweiger, CEO and Co-founder of Hawk AI. “Close collaboration is vital to delivering real-time, effective AML surveillance in a transparent and explainable manner. We look forward to working with Weavr to ensure their comprehensive financial services remain at the highest level of AML/CFT compliance.”
"In our search for an AML surveillance suite we wanted a long-term partner that we could innovate alongside, rather than a simple service provider," said Alex Mifsud, Co-founder & CEO. “Hawk AI’s modular approach, flexibility and focus on innovation for global growth together aligns perfectly with our design for a risk management solution that responds and adapts to the rich context and data that our Embedded Finance solutions can access when integrated into digital applications of all stripes.”
