automated due diligence for private equity

more thrills, less spills – grow safely with the full picture

With access to more capital, private equity firms are diversifying their portfolios across a wider range of businesses and countries.

To secure the most lucrative deals firms need to move fast. However, both investors and portfolio companies can expose a firm to regulatory and reputational risks and robust due diligence is critical.

encompass provides private equity firms with a scalable platform to automate preliminary due diligence and ongoing compliance oversight of individual and corporate investors, potential acquisitions and existing portfolio companies.

how do we help?

better quality, lower cost due diligence

Conduct deeper due diligence on investors, potential acquisitions and portfolio companies using intelligent automation to enhance quality and reduce costs.

reduced exposure to regulatory risk

Implement and automate best-in-class compliance across your firm and portfolio to mitigate money laundering; bribery and corruption and other financial crime risks.

informed investment decisions, faster

Automate slow, manual processes to access critical information on companies and people in minutes, speeding up decisions that drive growth, not risk.

how we do this

Using Intelligent Process Automation, encompass simultaneously accesses the global data sources you rely on when conducting due diligence to dynamically:

  • map out corporate structure and visualise in an interactive chart
  • identify beneficial ownership and control to your required thresholds
  • screen for regulatory risk, including political exposure and sanctions
  • check for adverse media to identify potential reputational risks
  • conduct identity verification and document authentication
  • compile a robust due diligence profile, including original documents
  • create a comprehensive audit trail to capture all searches, actions and decisions
