Identifying and reducing risk through enhanced due diligence (EDD)

Money laundering regulation requires that enhanced due diligence (EDD) is carried out when standard customer due diligence (CDD) identifies a high-risk customer or situation. This includes collecting and verifying substantially more information on a customer from a wide range of trusted and independent sources. This can lengthen the customer onboarding process, leading to poor customer experience.

Key benefits of our enhanced due diligence solutions


Efficiently source additional information from trusted and independent sources

Encompass has existing integrations in place with an unrivalled range of global public and premium data sources, including corporate registers, PEP and sanctions databases, adverse media and electronic identity verification providers. This global coverage provides KYC analysts with instant access to critical information for enhanced customer due diligence, saving significant time and cost.


Enhance and standardize EDD processes

Encompass’ dynamic KYC process automation has been consistently proven to return more complete KYC information than current processes relied on by regulated firms. In a Proof of Value exercise with a leading bank, Encompass identified 40% more ownership and control relationships than the bank analysts, using their existing process.

KYC automation standardizes processes to ensure a consistent, robust and repeatable approach to EDD, based on an organization’s policies and risk-based approach.


Uncover potential new sources of revenue

Encompass unwraps corporate ownership structures when performing KYC on a company. This information is critical to enhanced due diligence and KYC but is also immensely valuable in uncovering potential new sources of revenue – from either new customers or previously unknown entities and subsidiaries within existing customers.

The Encompass API integrates seamlessly with CLMs and CRMs providing revenue-generating teams with seamless access to a wealth of data and maximizing the value of EDD.
