Know your customer services

Money laundering and financing of terrorism risks can have a detrimental effect on the reputation of both businesses and individuals. To address these risks, regulated firms are required to perform thorough Know Your Customer (KYC) checks. Robust customer due diligence (CDD) is an integral part of a comprehensive risk management framework.

Our goal is to effectively assist you in the development and integration of highly effective KYC practices that align with jurisdictional regulations and industry best practices. Alongside our KYC services, we also offer comprehensive AML solutions designed to detect and prevent money laundering activities. Our compliance professionals are dedicated to addressing your queries and assisting with any issues highlighted by prospective investors.

  • Quick on-boarding of investors
  • Responsiveness to regulatory updates
  • Ongoing monitoring
  • Periodic refreshes

Our cost-effective compliance oversight service relieves the pressures of investor review, empowering you to prioritise deal activity and achieve favourable investor and client outcomes. By minimising your exposure to regulators, we significantly reduce the risk of facilitating money laundering and terrorist financing, while also ensuring your readiness for regulatory audits.

We can deliver a cost-effective compliance oversight that can relieve the pressures of reviewing your investors, allowing you to focus on deal activity and delivering strong investor and client outcomes. This reduces your exposure to the regulator and decreases the risk of facilitating money laundering and/or terrorist financing and also helps you get ready for regulatory audit.
