Who we are

Argos is Korea’s leading KYC/AML service company, which allows financial service providers, online platform enterprises, and other businesses to effectively apply legal, regulatory and operational measures for combating identity theft, money laundering, and terrorist financing. Our AI-based technology assesses whether a user’s government-issued ID and facial biometric is genuine or fraudulent, and evaluates if a person complies with international financial regulations. That’s how we give our clients the assurance they need to onboard customers remotely and securely.

Mission Statement

Create a world where good people transact safely, and keep the bad people out.

Our Story

Utilizing a state-of-the-art AI technology, Argos identifies one’s identity with accuracy and provides service for money laundering risk analysis. Having analyzed a countless number of people’s faces and identification data, AI’s detection ability is proven to surpass that of human eyes. Today at Argos, AI is conducting a forgery detection and its accurate identification capability will be replacing any other human competence in the near future. This will allow more diverse kinds of service providers to provide their services with confidence to partners and users. 

Digital transformation and emergence of various fintech services have led to a surge of financial services that are provided across borders. For successful market settlement, such fintech services must abide by international financial guidelines. Financial Action Task Force (FATF) has been adding new regulations to keep up to date with an unprecedented level of technology transformation, making it increasingly difficult for ordinary firms to keep up the pace. Argos will be providing the most convenient and secure compliance service so that those fintech firms can stay focused on their business. 

Argos aims to make a world where one can trust another with a greater confidence.
