Access authoritative KYC data via a single platform

In a global marketplace, access to trusted data sets with global reach is critical for robust regulatory compliance and risk management.

Researching, collating and verifying information about clients, customers and counterparties manually, is inefficient and error-prone. Without dedicated technical resource and expertise, ongoing maintenance of existing connections and adding new data integrations inhouse is challenging. Encompass removes this burden by providing access to data from a global collection of public data sources that is normalized, deduped and merged on retrieval, via a single platform.

Search on a company name or unique company identifier to obtain the evidence and data attributes you need including proof of registration and listed, PEP or sanctions status. Available for review by your analysts and retained within a CDI profile together with private information provided by the customer.
