About Encompass

A full and accurate picture of beneficial ownership is the foundation of effective KYC.

Manually building this picture from a plethora of documents and third party data sources, however, is a long, expensive and error-prone process.

Encompass’ intelligent process automation conducts live document and data collection, analysis and integration from public and premium sources to bring transparency to complex corporate structures and ultimate beneficial ownership, delivering the most accurate and complete KYC on demand.

The full picture of a customer significantly enhances the effectiveness and efficiency of subsequent KYC activities including screening and IDV - both of which can be carried out seamlessly in the Encompass platform if required.

All information on a customer, along with supporting documents, is dynamically compiled into a comprehensive, digital KYC profile that Encompass can also monitor for ongoing regulatory risk.
