Our challenge

Twenty years after the launch of the first text-based risk databases, FACEPOINT delivers breakthrough innovation by taking advantage of enhancements in biometrics and AI. FACEPOINT harnesses 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, compelling pilot results from Top Tier Banks have enabled FACEPOINT to launch its concept of  “No Name Screening”. Screenings can now be done using images, leaving behind the chronic problems of alphanumeric screening: disambiguation of common names, missing secondary identifiers, false identities, and high volumes of false positives.
Today, Facepoint offers the compliance community solutions of the future.

What we offer

In the context of KYC screening processes, FACEPOINT operates a worldwide image database of high-risk individuals and Persons of Interest, offering an alternative to traditional name-based screening and an access to enhanced information.
There are two possibilities of querying FACEPOINT’s database:
1 - by image-based search
2 - by text-based search
Both services give access to FACEPOINT’s exclusive photographic database enabling users to disambiguate potential matches, accelerate identification and remediation processes and make more informed decisions.

Risk mitigation

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.
