Our Purpose

Why we are here

GSS was founded in 2021 to solve industry-wide challenges in the financial services sector. 

What we are doing

We bring together people and organisations from around the world to develop and deliver market leading solutions that solve complex industry challenges. Starting with sanctions transactions screening, GSS changes the way financial crime is managed by partnering with leading financial institutions and trusted industry partners to deliver effective and efficient watchlist screening.

The solution will perform state of the art, real time watchlist screening using the most advanced technology solutions for list management, alert generation and disposition.

How we do this

Working with leading international financial institutions and harnessing a leadership team with over 100 years of experience, GSS has re-imagined how we manage the fight against financial crime and redefines how risk compliance is delivered.
