LexisNexis Risk Solutions Ranks as Functionality Standout in 2023 Celent AML Transaction Monitoring Report

LexisNexis® RiskNarrative Ranked as a Leader Among New Market Entrants


ATLANTA — LexisNexis® Risk Solutions announced its LexisNexis® RiskNarrative™ platform ranked as a Functionality Standout in Celent’s 2023 AML (anti-money laundering) Transaction Monitoring (TM) Report.

Celent evaluated 40 software providers worldwide with the final report featuring 17 profiled vendors. Celent used its proprietary ABC methodology to position companies across three dimensions: Advanced Technology, Breadth of Functionality and Customer Base and Support.

As a result of shifts in technology and the supplier landscape, half of the systems profiled in Celent's AML TM systems report were developed by new entrants over the past five to ten years. LexisNexis Risk Solutions began offering AML TM when it launched its RiskNarrative platform in late 2022 shortly after its TruNarrative acquisition earlier in the year.

The supplier landscape has expanded dramatically with the addition of numerous new regtech entrants offering digitally-enabled solutions,” said Neil Katkov, Ph.D, Risk Director at Celent. “The AML TM solution from LexisNexis Risk Solutions is differentiated by its no code platform and AI-based process automation to support fincrime workflows. RiskNarrative earned high marks to place them squarely in the Functionality Standout category.”

Ryan Morrison, vice president of platform strategy, LexisNexis Risk Solutions, said, “We are thrilled with this recognition by Celent as it signifies the success of our team’s dedication and work to bring a cutting-edge transaction monitoring solution to market so quickly. We fully intend to take this solid foundation and tirelessly innovate the platform and grow its services to meet customers right where they need it.
