ensure AML & CTF compliance, onboard clients faster, and reduce the real cost of your KYC process

The Money Laundering, Terrorist Financing and Transfer of Funds (Information on the Payer) Regulations 2017 have now come in to force. All businesses need to update their systems to comply with the new regulatory framework. This is not easily achieved.

Existing compliance workflows consist largely of disparate, standalone systems linked by manual tasks, making processes prone to human error and requiring high-levels of costly oversight.

encompass verify solves this problem

encompass verify robotically searches structured and unstructured information sources to automate your KYC, AML and EDD policies. Key elements including UBOs, PEPs, sanctions and adverse media are all identified, visualised and verified in seconds. Whether it’s one, or one thousand customers, enhanced risk assessment, monitoring and remediation can now be achieved at scale through the power of automation.
