Connecting the dots in complex financial networks, fraud detection and due diligence searches
If you have ever had to conduct due diligence; or investigate a client for potential fraud and money laundering; search for hidden assets; or simply satisfy compliance requirements you will be familiar with the information dump of disconnected data that most financial search companies provide.
The internet age allows for both great simplicity and huge complexity. An individual in one jurisdiction or country can register a business entity in another jurisdiction using third-party actors that may never meet or see each other, let alone be in the same locale. Everything can be done online, and at the push of a button money can be moved around the globe.
Complex webs of holding companies and other entities make it extremely difficult to assess an individual’s or organization’s financial infrastructure. In short, the criminal element has “never had it so good”. How to bring simplicity to this complexity? How can we enable financial institutions and law firms to do deep dive analysis of client’s efficiently and effectively?
