we believe the best decisions are made when people understand the full picture

Wayne Johnson | Co-Founder and CEO

encompass is the creator of Know Your Customer (KYC) automation for major financial and professional service firms globally. We are the leading provider of simultaneous, real-time access to multiple sources of global company and person data.

Through personal experience, we know that access to the full picture can empower businesses to fight global financial crime. Following the successful exit of their big data visualisation company, our founders, Wayne Johnson and Roger Carson, became investors themselves. One of those investments proved very costly when they became victims of financial crime. Frustratingly, information on the parties involved that would have flagged this risk was available, but inefficient, manual processes meant it was overlooked. With the full picture, Wayne and Roger would have walked away from the deal.

This experience led them to set up encompass with the mission of enabling regulated firms to comprehensively detect and prevent financial crime and reduce regulatory risk.
