About Us

From day one, RealAML has been focused on becoming New Zealand’s most affordable and effective real-time and outsourced AML solution. We are passionate about providing New Zealand’s highest identity pass rates, with the easiest to use platform.

We officially launched in Auckland on Valentine’s Day, 2019 after spending several years building software enabling New Zealand real estate agents and consumers to buy and sell property without touching a single pen or piece of paper. 

Launching in an already competitive environment wasn’t a decision we took lightly. But, after seeing a lack of transparency and segmented and expensive solutions, we knew what the market needed.

RealAML was the first and is still is the only AML platform in New Zealand that provides access to both global real-time identity checks and fully outsourced AML checks. We work predominately with Phase 2 New Zealand reporting entities. However, as our reputation grows, so does our client base, which now includes some of New Zealand’s most successful financial institutions.

Our services are contract-free and PAYG, and always will be. Our AML tools are perfect for any sized business performing captured AML activities. Only use what you want, when you want. Run real-time identity and PEP checks on behalf of your customers in New Zealand and 13 other countries, email them a link to complete themselves, or outsource your complex company and trust checks to our AML experts. The choice is always yours.

One of our first notable clients was Bayleys C&I in Wellington, who, to this day, use our platform on a weekly basis. They are one of the dozens of companies who continue to rate us as New Zealand’s number one AML platform.

We believe in carving our own path, and not worrying about the rest, which happens to include providing the highest level of customer care, not only to our clients, but also yours.

Our co-founders

Jordan is truly passionate about building new solutions for unsolved problems. In 2015, Jordan owned a thriving stockbroking firm. He was looking for a solution to convert third-party PDFs into responsive web forms, but he couldn’t find one. So, of course, he parlayed from finance to tech and built the solution. Fast forward to the present, Jordan leads a team of skilled developers and AML analysts focussing on providing New Zealand’s number one AML platform.
