About Sentinels

Uncovering Financial Crime Networks

At Sentinels, we work hard in developing better ways to detect money laundering and make the world a safer place.

Our Story

Sentinels was founded in 2019 to solve a ubiquitous problem in the anti-money laundering compliance space, transaction monitoring. This core element in the fight against financial crime has traditionally relied on slow and manual processes. Sentinels automates transaction monitoring using machine learning and artificial intelligence to accelerate the operations of compliance teams and close out compliance investigations more quickly. 

In April 2022, Sentinels was acquired by Fenergo, the global leading provider of Customer Lifecycle Management technology solutions for financial institutions. Now Sentinels is able to scale rapidly, increase its global footprint, and better serve compliance needs as part of a complete end-to-end AML solution or a targeted transaction monitoring solution depending on client needs.

Building for a better future

From our HQ in the heart of Amsterdam and supporting locations around the world, we are passionate about developing tech to stop the financing of illegal activities.

We treasure our differences: our varied nationalities, backgrounds and perspectives spark discussion and lead to better results. Being direct and down to earth, we value team spirit and a transparent way of working.

At Sentinels, you get to work in an industry that will only continue to grow in the coming years. Backed by our parent company and fintech unicorn, Fenergo, the future looks very bright! 

Our Vision

We’re dedicated to creating and developing an out-of-the-box solution to transaction monitoring and fraud compliance for all businesses. Sentinels delivers the compliance software that companies need to not only reduce exposure to regulatory hardship but also map out financial crime networks so they can see the proceeds of crime attempting to touch their business before it even happens. Sentinels aims to eliminate unrecognizable proceeds of crime as a concept.
