For financial services, one of the key purposes of the regulatory landscape is to improve financial security and standards within the banking system.

As regulations become more complex and stringent, does ensuring compliance present a burden or do these regulations actually benefit banks?

This topic was the focus of our recent webinar, as academic and Head of Delivery Services & Customer Success at Encompass, Dr Henry Balani, offered insight into his research on the impact of the Fourth Anti-Money Laundering Directive (4AMLD) on bank valuations.

In his presentation, Dr Balani discussed:

About Encompass

A full and accurate picture of beneficial ownership is the foundation of effective KYC. Manually building this picture from a plethora of documents and third party sources, however, is a long, expensive and error-prone process.

Encompass’ intelligent process automation conducts on demand document and data collection, analysis and integration from public and premium sources to bring transparency to complex corporate structures and ultimate beneficial ownership, delivering the most accurate and complete KYC on demand.

The full picture of a customer significantly enhances the effectiveness and efficiency of subsequent KYC activities including screening and IDV - both of which can be carried out seamlessly in the Encompass platform if required.

All information on a customer, along with supporting documents, are dynamically compiled into a comprehensive, digital KYC profile that Encompass can also monitor for ongoing regulatory risk.
