Our challenge

Twenty years after the launch of the first biographical databases, Facepoint offers breakthrough innovation by taking advantage of enhancements in biometrics and AI. Facepoint proposes the combination of  two powerful tools: an exclusive photographic database of high-risk individuals as defined by international regulatory standards, and state-of-the-art biometrical technology. After two years of research and development, convincing results from Top Tier Banks has enabled Facepoint to launch its concept of  “No Name Screening”. Verifications are now done using images, leaving behind the old problems of alphanumeric checks, such as transliterations or DOB relevancy.
Today, Facepoint offers the compliance community solutions of the future.

What we offer

In the context of KYC screening processes, Facepoint publishes a worldwide image bank on "people of interest", and offers a "live de-risking" solution thanks to cutting-edge image analysis. The breakthrough solution developed by Facepoint consists in replacing text with image, in order to disambiguate traditional text-based identification and massively reduce false positive rates."

Live de-risking

Content collected by Facepoint's analysts allows for a near real-time identification and de-risking of emerging threats which remain out of reach of traditional watchlists

Customer journey acceleration

A quicker identification process of high-risk individuals accelerates and therefore secures customers' onboarding.

Massive drop of false positives

Facial images are highly specific. Coupled with facial recognition technology, they drastically reduce false alarm rates and consequently tedious and costly human-performed verifications.


FACEPOINT was created in Paris in 2017 and is managed by 4 seasoned Compliance & Data professionals, employing 70 KYC experts.

Our trusted partners
