Webinar Corporate digital identity: The future of customer-centric banking Book your place

We know that having access to the full picture can create business opportunities and empower businesses to fight financial crime

Following the successful exit of their big data visualization company, our founders, Wayne Johnson and Roger Carson, became investors. One of those investments proved costly, as they became victims of financial crime.

Information on the parties involved that would have flagged this risk was available but inefficient and manual processes meant it was overlooked. With a clear and comprehensive picture of these parties, Wayne and Roger would have walked away from the deal.

This experience led them to set up Encompass with the mission of enabling banks to create and maintain the identity of their corporate customers to create business opportunities, prevent financial crime and reduce regulatory risk.
