LONDON 1st April 2021 – London-based RegTech DueDil announces partnership with global business verification provider kompany to launch international KYB compliance and in-life monitoring platform
The last year saw a surge in the adoption of digital channels to access financial products and services. Yet while more customers are flocking to digital channels, they also appear to be getting pickier. Last year 63% of customers abandoned digital bank applications, more than ever before.
The need to adapt to customer behavior is made all the more difficult by fragmented regulatory frameworks and the growing global nature of financial services and business in general.
Financial service providers face the dual challenge of having to respond to rapidly changing behavior while meeting increasingly stringent regulations aimed at combating fraud and money laundering. The partnership between DueDil and kompany looks to resolve this challenge by offering a single platform for banks, FinTechs and insurers to manage digital KYB compliance and proactive customer monitoring on a global scale.
“Until now, financial service providers have had to access multiple data sources, interpret that information and integrate it into existing workflows at considerable cost and with limited success. This partnership will provide a single platform to access authoritative and contextualized KYB information and make it readily available via our best-in-class API. kompany’s real-time global register network is a fantastic complement to the insight provided through the DueDil Business Information Graph (B.I.G.)™. ”
Justin Fitzpatrick – CEO, DueDil
“We are committed to delivering company data with the highest veracity directly from the primary source. Our partnership with DueDil will allow us to combine the strength of our platforms to offer our clients a larger portfolio of KYB services to achieve AML compliance. The DueDil Business Information Graph (B.I.G.)™ is a powerful addition.”
Russell E. Perry – CEO & Founder, kompany
Working together, DueDil and kompany aim to reduce the compliance burden on banks, insurers and FinTechs operating globally. Clients will benefit from DueDil’s best-in-class company insights and API, leveraging kompany’s unparalleled access to authoritative and audit-proof business information in more than 200 jurisdictions around the world.
“Traditional KYB checks are heavily flawed. They place huge pressures on both the customer and the financial service provider to verify and monitor their customer base. Working with kompany we will offer a single access point for best-in-class KYB information from more than 200 jurisdictions globally, making it easier for FinTechs, banks, and insurers to onboard customers more quickly, stay compliant and build deeper customer relationships.”
Justin Fitzpatrick – CEO, DueDil
Further product announcements are expected in the coming months, and conversations are already underway with a number of global financial institutions looking to benefit from the new partnership.
“The power of DueDil’s Business Information Graph (B.I.G.)™ and kompany’s unparalleled ability to access authoritative information in real-time is an enticing combination for banks and financial institutions at any size. The level of understanding of the global market will be unrivaled and all available through a single platform. This has the potential to reduce cost and increase KYB compliance for financial service providers.”
Russell Perry – CEO and Founder, kompany
