Solve your school's toughest compliance challenges.
Know who is paying your school fees and avoid reputational damage.
PEP and sanction checks
Once you submit the names and email addresses of the parents or guardians of your prospective student, that’s it – we’ll screen their name through global sanctions lists and PEPs (Politically Exposed Persons) for red flags.
If fees are being paid through a company or other complex entity, our solution uncovers the beneficial owners of the company and anything else you need to know.
We also check sanctions lists daily - so if anything changes, you'll be the first to know.
Security and privacy
First AML is built on a security-first premise, so you and the families of your pupils can be assured their sensitive information will remain private.
Thanks to our ISO 27001 certification, encrypted HTTPS protocols, regularly reviewed cypher suites, rotated encryption keys and more, we guarantee your school’s data is safe and secure.
