Celebrating 25 Years of Truth Technologies

Who We Are:

November 15th, 1996, Richmond, Virginia. The time and place Truth Technologies was born.  It has been 25 years since the development of Money Laundering Detection System (MLDS), the first Anti-Money Laundering (AML) compliance solution.  Our company became a trailblazer for Know Your Customer (KYC) and Anti Money Laundering (AML) compliance back then and continues to be a trailblazer in the industry today. Of course, without our loyal customers, advancement in our technologies would not be possible, so to you, we say thank you.

Founded by Egide Thein, Truth Technologies is a premier provider of worldwide anti-money laundering, anti-fraud, customer identification, and compliance products and services. Mr. Thein brings years of experience from the banking sector and regulatory technology, which provides unique viewpoints on the best ways to halt financial crime.

Development of KYC Compliance Systems

Out of a desire for US banking institutions to be regulated, our concept for AML and KYC compliance systems was developed. Until 1997, AML-KYC regulations were inexistent. Regulators would often sanction banking institutions based on unknown codes of conduct.  Banking institutions thirsted for a way to have a framework of certainty by which to conduct business. Our newly developed technology, Sentinel, provided the answer and we knew that it was only a matter of time before the US would publish regulations.  Shortly afterwards these regulations became an international standard by the creation of the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) inside the OECD organization.

Why KYC Compliance is so Important

Recent years have seen an increase in awareness in financial fraud, corruption, and crimes. The recent Pandora Papers, Panama Papers, Paradise Papers, and others have shed light on the growing need for regulatory and KYC compliance technologies. It has also spurred new regulations such as the Whistleblower Protection Act and Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act(FATCA). And proposals for new regulations such as the Stop Tax Haven Abuse Act and the ENABLERS Act.  The Stop Tax Haven Abuse Act attempts to limit the use of tax havens to circumvent other U.S. tax laws; the ENABLERS Act imposes  strict due diligence requirements on middlemen such as law firms and other advisory services.

Truth Technologies is uniquely positioned to handle the growing compliance measures in a market that is constantly widening to include more industries than ever.
