During the interview, Wayne also extrapolates on how encompass came into being. He explains:

encompass was founded after we were defrauded in a property investment. If we’d had the full picture on the people and companies involved, then this loss would never have happened – and that brought home to us the power of having the right information for the right sources easily accessible. encompass was founded to ensure the same couldn’t happen to others.”

The changes being implemented at governmental and intergovernmental level require firms across sectors to undertake comprehensive checks on client before they can be successfully onboarded. For this reason, encompass have developed technology to automate Know Your Customer (KYC) policies and ensure adherence to Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and Counter Terrorism Financing (CTF) regulations in financial, legal and accounting businesses.
