I am well aligned with DataSeers’ value pillars of Innovation, Perseverance, and Simplicity, and I look forward to motivating our team to continued success.

In 2020, the Financial Services Industry saw a steep rise in fraud and identity issues thanks to the Covid-19 pandemic and the majority of financial services going digital. This has impacted the eKYC industry tremendously. The increase in fraud combined with the new AML directives in the US and UK/EU has inspired DataSeers invest heavily in its newest “Seer,” IdentitySeer – which serves as a global identity verification and monitoring solution. DataSeers can now onboard in 220+ countries and validate against government sources where available. With IDs & document validations, liveness checks, global sanctions, watchlists, PEP and adverse media searches all under a single umbrella, FinanSeer makes for a very attractive full-data solution to clients.
“DataSeers grew tremendously in 2020 and 2021 is looking to be even more promising thanks to its clients and partners. With this new module, IdentitySeer, launching in 2021, DataSeers will focus on servicing the Identity Market globally. Gracie’s expertise in the industry and ability to implement and manage processes within the organization will be extremely useful. I am super excited that she is stepping up to the C-Suite with us.” said Adwait Joshi, CEO.
