Understand your business customers to better manage your compliance risk

With an increased focus on business customer verification and monitoring due to Know Your Customer (KYC) and Anti-Money Laundering (AML) regulations, organisations are benefiting from placing an increased commitment on checking and validating business customers through Experian’s Compliance Solutions.

Complex business structures can mean you need to take further steps to be sure you know who you’re dealing with. Incomplete information and disjointed systems make it hard to get a good view of your customer risk profile. Getting it wrong can cause delays, inconvenience and can mean a negative experience for both you and your customers.

Our Compliance solutions provide relevant, accurate and up-to-date information to make quick and consistent customer assessments that allow you to take a risk-based approach to your KYC requirements.
