Quickly Evaluate Businesses, their Directors & Shareholders
Understanding the risk associated with businesses you work with is a vital to protecting your own business. We offer comprehensive KYB data including shareholder information and credit reports on companies around the world. Our Know Your Business (KYB) suite has been designed to provide finance and credit teams with all the tools and details needed to make informed, data-driven decisions.
Required Due Diligence
The current 4th and forthcoming 5th AML Directive includes Know Your Business (KYB) due diligence which requires an understanding of the ownership and control structure of the entity you wish to engage with. Identifying the beneficial owner and taking reasonable measures to verify that person or entity is not Sanctioned or linked to a Politically Exposed Persons (PEP) is a requirement. A beneficial owner is an individual or company that owns more than 25% of the corporate entity.
Regulators require that you have an understanding of the businesses you work with.
