KYC Due Diligence Reports
Prior to establishing a business relationship you need to verify whether your prospect or partner – whether it be a company or an individual – is providing you with full and accurate information. More importantly you need to confirm that you are not becoming involved in a money laundering scheme or being associated with terrorist or organized criminal activity.
We provide confidential global due diligence background reports which are structured to deliver focused intelligence to ensure that your legal and regulatory obligations with regard to Know Your Customer (KYC) due diligence are met and that you are not exposed to reputational, operational, legal or concentration risks.
We carry out fixed-price background checks on individuals and companies across the world in Europe, the Americas, Russia and the CIS, the Middle East, Asia and Australasia. We are particularly adept at providing background information on high net worth individuals and/or associated corporate entities, and politically exposed persons (PEPs).
Country Risk Reports
When establishing a business or financial relationship with a new customer it is essential to carry out thorough KYC checks in order to validate and verify the information they provide and protect yourself from becoming associated with money laundering and organized criminal activity.
When considering doing business in a new country, it is equally important to assess any potential business or financial risks that might exist in the subject country, such as corruption, money laundering or political instability which could adversely affect your company. You may be considering entering a new market, setting up an office, establishing a subsidiary or forming a trade agreement. Alternatively you may already be operating in the country in question. Whatever the reason, up to the minute and business focussed intelligence in relation to the country you want to operate in – or are already operating in – can give you the means to make informed decisions based on a comprehensive awareness of the major business risks that exist.
