Our Story

Fincom is the result of over fifteen years of effort by a dedicated team of highly talented scientists and industry experts to develop the first automated technology for accurately screening of multilingual entities. It initially started as a “contact list unification” – the process of unification of unstructured data – applied in the mobile industry.

In 2016, Gideon Drori and Dr. Oleg Golobrodsky, the founders of Fincom, decided to apply their hard-earned knowledge to the field of anti-money laundering (AML). One of the first significant problems solved by Fincom was finding a common cross-language denominator for unifying database entries. The need for this approach arises from the fact that different languages, with their various spelling formats, scripts, and resulting transliterations, as well as typical spelling mistakes and variations, compromise the integrity of the database. The industry has been plagued by unstructured databases due to different database formats. To date, no other technology has been able to process these unstructured databases and achieve database entry unification.

Fincom has successfully overcome this problem through a linguistic and semantic approach to and the incorporation of phonology and its focus on the interpretation of sound in language. The approach taken by Fincom is based on the notation of speech sounds, addressing known challenges in auditory phonetics and descriptive linguistics. This is necessary because existing language notations are not universally adopted across dictionaries in languages other than English.

Fincom further advanced this with its groundbreaking patented technology – the ‘Phonetic Fingerprint.’ This technology employs a robust algorithmic approach to compare written text in multiple languages by converting names into mathematical sequences based on the phoneme rather than the spelling. As a result, the Phonetic Fingerprint technology is capable of accurately matching entries across databases.

Fincom has enriched this core technology with additional tools and mathematical, linguistic, and other algorithms, to develop the most effective and efficient AML screening solution.

Over the years, Fincom’s solution has gained recognition and proven itself to be the most accurate and cost-effective tool for AML screening. It is widely utilized by banks, financial institutions, and other companies subject to AML regulations.
