🎙️e-Estonia podcast: Taavi Tamkivi’s Salv takes on the trillion-dollar fincrime industry

Article content

Taavi Tamkivi is the founder and CEO of a startup called Salv that aims to kill an industry valued at a trillion dollars a year.  Salv is an anti-money laundering platform that helps financial institutions, banks, etc., to be compliant and catch fraudsters simultaneously. Taavi likes to say that he is no longer building a product but a community of crime-fighters. Almost like a Marvel universe.

In the most recent episode of the e-Estonia podcast “The Art of Digitalisation,” Tamkivi talks to the host Florian Marcus about:

  • How 7 out of 10 fincrime cases are happening across the border; 
  • That only 1% of financial crimes get solved;
  • What are Salv’s expansion plans, and why GDPR is a good thing;
  • How Salv is growing a community of crime fighters;
  • How the most heinous crimes in the world – trafficking, drugs, and war – all lead to money laundering;
  • What was the most prominent case that Salv’s AML-bridge helped solve;
  • How surprisingly, only 0,4% of all money laundering happens via cryptocurrencies;
  • What are the latest trends in the Estonian and global fintech sector?

🎧︎ The episode is available on Apple Podcast and Spotify.
