Customer Due Diligence

Screening for integrity for a comprehensive Customer Due Diligence process.

Once you have identified the ultimate beneficiaries or the UBOs of an organisation, you should screen them for integrity risks. You must check whether they appear on sanction lists, checklists, PEP lists or whether they have negative news reports recently. You then determine in which risk class they fall. Only when you have done this, will you have a comprehensive compliance process and you will be in line with laws and regulations to prevent money laundering and terrorist financing.

Customer Due Diligence

Customer Due Diligence

To be compliant, you need to know who you are doing business with and avoid fraudulent and criminal parties. In practice, this means that you must conduct a thorough customer investigation, sometimes called Customer Due Diligence or Know Your Customer (KYC). If you fail to do this or it is not performed to a sufficient level, you risk a considerable fine with the added risk of reputation damage.

Don't just view the Customer Due Diligence process as a tedious obligation. It is in the interest of your own business and the public interest that you avoid any involvement with fraudulent companies. The entire process is complex and time consuming if you have to do it manually. However, with our automated Customer Due Diligence solutions, this is a thing of the past.
