Just how good is your Know Your Customer (KYC) process? In the present regulatory environment, where risk of reputational damage, significant fines and even prison sentences is all too real, ensuring compliance with your company’s internal AML/CTF policies is of paramount importance.

This is not easily achieved. Compliance workflows consist largely of disparate, standalone systems linked by manual tasks. Processes are prone to human error, and require high-levels of oversight.

encompass verify aggregates data from the world’s leading AML/CTF information providers. We then automate workflow in-line with your internal AML/CTF policies to significantly enhance the way you research, onboard and review prospects and clients.

encompass verify reduces the time, cost and risk involved in due diligence activities, while enabling you to better demonstrate value to clients and compliance to regulators.
