Minerva helps compliance teams get ahead of bad money, for good

Effective. Efficient. Easy to use. No compromise required.

You can’t fight today’s criminals with yesterday’s tools. After years of working as AML investigators and executives, we got tired of hearing that we had to choose between efficient tools or an effective program. We built Minerva to change that.

Powered by deep learning, Minerva is a proactive AML platform for leading financial organizations. It stops bad actors at the door with predictive intelligence so that the good guys can stay one step ahead.

As former AML execs, we’ve been there — a lot

Our founding team blends decades of AML executive experience with cutting-edge deep learning research and development. Our common backgrounds in investigation mean we share collective conviction and drive to build for better.

Jennifer Arnold

Co-Founder & CEO

Jen has made it her mission to demystify AML compliance. In her roles as VP of Compliance & Programs at Wells Fargo and Senior Director of AML Transformation at CIBC, Jennifer became all too familiar with the challenges of designing and implementing AML programs without introducing unnecessary complexity or cost. Now, she’s building efficient, effective solutions that scale for financial crime fighters everywhere.

Victor Tay

Co-Founder & COO

With a background in Electrical Engineering and 15+ years of experience in AML and financial crimes, Victor has led complex solution implementations at some of the world’s largest Tier 1 banks. He’s the former Chief AML Officer and VP Risk Services at Wells Fargo Canada, and he was the head of AML Solution and Strategy at CIBC before that. As our COO, Victor continues to build systems at scale across our operations, data, and product strategy.

Damian Tran

Co-Founder & CTO

Damian has been building investigation tools for years, but before Minerva, his deep learning models were used to help clinics, labs, and medical institutions with leukemia research. Applying academic approaches to research and development, he built Minerva’s original deep learning models, algorithms, databases, and applications. Today, he leads our engineering organization, delivering deep learning and big data solutions at scale.
