Our vision

A safe, secure and trusted global financial system

Identitii was founded in 2014 to solve one of the biggest regulatory challenges in the world. How to reduce regulatory risk, without replacing legacy technology systems.

Know Your Transaction is the idea that KYC is no longer enough to prevent money laundering. Enabling intelligent information to travel with a payment is helping our customers better understand the origin, purpose and beneficiary of a transaction, as it happens.
