ThetaRay AI Tech to Monitor Remittance Transactions Into Africa for Zeepay

Ghanaian fintech chooses SONAR SaaS solution to detect financial crime, drive increased financial inclusion and support growth

ThetaRay, a leading provider of AI-powered transaction monitoring technology, announced that Zeepay, a fast-growing Ghanian mobile financial services company, has selected ThetaRay’s advanced SONAR SaaS anti-money laundering solution to detect financial crime for its remittance transactions.

“Zeepay is leading the African fintech market while truly making the world a better place by offering lower-cost services to underserved regions”

The agreement with Zeepay highlights ThetaRay’s expansion in the African payments market.

Remittances are an important method of bringing money into low-income countries and unbanked communities. However, they can also be used as a conduit for financial crime for illicit funds. As remittances make up the majority of Zeepay’s business, the company needed to replace its previous rules-based monitoring solution with an AI-based solution capable of detecting the very first signs of even the newest and most sophisticated financial crime schemes.

Kwame Baah-Gyimah, head of Compliance at Zeepay, added: “ThetaRay has a seamless user interface providing intuitive and dynamic features. Their AI feature helps improve actionable alerts by reducing false alerts related to remittance transactions.”

SONAR is based on an advanced form of AI that makes better decisions with no bias or thresholds. It enables fintechs and banks to implement a risk-based approach to effectively identify truly suspicious activity and create a full picture of customer identities, including across complex, cross-border transaction paths. This enables the rapid discovery of both known and unknown money laundering threats, with up to 99% reduction in false positives compared to rules-based solutions.

“Zeepay is leading the African fintech market while truly making the world a better place by offering lower-cost services to underserved regions,” said Mark Gazit, CEO of ThetaRay. “The company should not have to worry about its technology being exploited while enabling foreign workers to send money home to their families. We are proud to provide an AI solution that can stop criminals in their tracks so Zeepay can continue to promote financial inclusion and grow its business.”
