When you need to know more

Our Enhanced Due Diligence (EDD) reports provide a high level of scrutiny of potential business associates, and throw light on the risks that cannot be detected by geopolitical analysis or batch screening levels.

They offer auditable proof of due diligence to help:

  • Meet regulations – Comply with anti-money laundering, anti-bribery, and corruption regulations
  • Simplify the due diligence process – Identify risk issues using a range of reports that meet different compliance requirements
  • Protect your business – Safeguard against reputational risk by avoiding those involved in financial crime.

As well as a company, its owners, and its operating and litigation history, our reports focus on key management and decision-makers, providing deep insight on their background, track records, competencies, potential conflicts of interest, and political and criminal links.

How it works

Reports to suit your specific needs

We offer a range of different reports to help you mitigate risk, secure supply chains, and simplify due diligence processes.

We are also able to offer preliminary insights into which individuals or entities present heightened risk.

This service can be used to gauge potential risk and indicate the type of report most suitable.
