encompass Partners with Wisers Information Limited to Bolster Asian Content for Know Your Customer Requirements

encompass, the only provider of simultaneous, real-time access to multiple sources of global company and person data, today announced a new partnership with Wisers Information Limited, the world’s leading provider of Chinese media and business intelligence. 

As European and US governments continue to enhance anti-money laundering (AML) regulations, financial institutions operating in Asia Pacific have ramped up their AML controls to ensure full compliance. New procedures put in place by many regulated firms include the requirement for more in depth KYC (Know Your Customer) information prior to onboarding new customers, and for this information to be updated more frequently. As a result, the cost and time spent on KYC is increasing at an unsustainable rate.

Local regulators strongly back the use of innovative technology to streamline Know Your Customer and regulatory compliance, and in March 2018 encompass launched operations in Hong Kong to better meet increasing demand for their KYC automation solution. The integration of Wisers into the encompass platform ensures regulated firms now have seamless access to a wealth of critical, regional KYC data.

According to Paul Charmatz, Managing Director at encompass, “By robotically automating information and news discovery for KYC, encompass dramatically improves the productivity of compliance teams, which is top of mind for Asian financial institutions. Wisers is a critical source of information for this market and we’re excited about the powerful combination of our technology and Wisers data, especially for the Greater China region and the benefits this will bring to our customers”.

“Compliance teams are under tremendous pressure to improve productivity, and feeding Wisers data directly
