Benefits and features
Screen in real-time and retroactively
Screen your customers against Dow Jones sanction lists and custom lists both in real-time or retroactively.
We update our sanctions lists 3x a day to promptly identify and minimise sanctions risk to your business.
Custom lists allow you to upload specific lists yourself, whether they are specific to your company or industry. You can check transaction references and counter-parties, including bank names and BIC codes, from both Dow Jones’ lists and your own.
No more obvious false positives
Nothing – yet – can bring false positives to zero. But Salv’s Auto-Resolution Tool a.k.a. clearance rules resolve most of them automatically, allowing your team to focus on what matters.
Sanctions screening generates a high volume of false positive alerts. But your team doesn’t have to close the same alerts every single day.
You can create fully transparent rules to automatically resolve obvious false positive alerts – all while leaving a clear audit trail of every decision made.
Choose from 50+ clearance rules in our library or create your own. Our data team is happy to assist you in creating rules that perfectly match your needs.
Sanctions, adverse media, and PEP
With Salv, you can screen both customers and transactions against sanctions, PEP, and adverse media lists – screen any data field you need.
For example, you can easily screen country, bank name, BIC, IBAN fields, and many more. Tweak your fuzzy matching with entities on lists to be more or less sensitive, depending on your risk appetite.
Effortless API integration
No need to spend hours on documentation, you can start the integration process within minutes.
Get dedicated support
At no additional cost, you get a personal integration manager, compliance consultant, data scientist and a product engineer.
Integrate with a single API call
No multi-step workflows. We built a simple and straightforward process to address all your needs.
Banks know what the problems are, but Salv worked out how to really solve them. And it’s not just in money laundering and terrorist financing, it’s also been useful in fraud prevention.
OLAVI LEPP, CEO Swedbank Estonia
For one thing, [the screening process] works really well. It’s simple to understand and highly automated. Assigning and distributing alerts within the team can be done in seconds.
The transparent UI makes Salv’s transaction monitoring convenient and easy to use. It has a clear structure that allows us to add and modify rules using our own criteria.
Specifically, we were looking for better rule implementation, reporting, and integrated customer risk scoring. Salv ticked all the boxes. Using Salv has helped us to significantly improve our team’s efficiency.
Sanctions screening is known for creating a high volume of false positive alerts, which, in turn, means an extra workload for your AML team. It’s unrealistic to bring your false positives to zero, but based on our customer’s data and experience we can reduce 90% of your false positive alerts. This is possible with the help of our sophisticated clearance rules that help you automatically reduce most of the alerts that you otherwise would need to check manually.
You can choose from 50+ clearance rules in our library or create the rules that best fit your organisation’s needs. Our clearance rules have been successfully tested by our customers.

Salv’s solutions helps a wide range of financial companies to meet their AML/CFT requirements and better tackle financial crime. Our customers include fintech startups and established banks, as well as money services businesses (MSBs), payment service providers (PSPs), virtual asset service providers (VASPs), digital banks, including neobanks and challenger banks, e-commerce companies, buy now, pay later (BNPL) solutions and many more.
We help crypto companies, but only those that have a fiat element included in their business model as our solutions are not built for crypto-to-crypto transaction monitoring.
We currently help customers in more than twelve different countries in Europe and beyond.
Salv’s platform is built in a way that gives you the flexibility to choose and start out with only the products and features you need, and add on more capabilities once your business scales and your needs grow. You can of course also start out with the full solution and integrate all our platform’s features at once.
Also if you already have a working inhouse solution or you cover some of your compliance needs with a different provider, you can easily integrate our platform as an additional defence against financial crime.
The exact integration time depends on many factors, but we can point out three main influences. Firstly, it depends whether you are integrating the whole platform or only some of the products. The full platform integration obviously takes longer than integrating only Sanctions Screening or Risk Scoring.
Secondly, it depends on the quality of your data, how much preparation it needs, and whether you have your own inhouse data scientists. The same goes for the availability of your inhouse engineering power.
And thirdly, it depends on how much help you need from our side to figure out the best compliance rules for your business. We don’t like to overpromise: an integration process takes, on average, between 8-12 weeks, depending on the aforementioned aspects. However, depending on complexity and willingness, it may be completed in as few as 16 days.
When you start working with us you’ll have the full support of our integration team to get Screening up and running. During the integration phase there will be a dedicated Integration Manager who will make sure the integration runs smoothly and according to plan. In addition, the team includes a dedicated Engineer to help with all needed technical aspects, and a Data Scientist to help with data mapping and rule implementation. After a successful go-live a dedicated Client Manager will take over to support you further and make sure everything proceeds smoothly and your needs are covered in full.
We take our platform’s security very seriously. We have successfully completed SOC2 Type 1 audit and SOC2 Type 2 audit. Our platform is also fully GDPR compliant. All data in transport is protected by TLS encryption. Data at rest is encrypted and protected with all the latest security methods. And our developers follow OWASP guidelines.
