FinCrime Focus: Money Laundering in the UK

In this video, Grant McDonald, Director of Financial Crime Market Engagement at Experian and Alan Brown of Aptitude discuss why UK businesses are a popular choice for financial criminals and how, through using third-party data, we can better detect and deter financial crime.

The UK is a popular choice for financial criminals to carry out their nefarious activity. Setting up a business in the UK is simple, and with little verification of information, manipulated entries can go unnoticed.

In the last three years, there has been a stark increase in the number of “suspicious” business addresses and a doubling of businesses set up with no UK-based directors.

Multi-source data corroboration can help you validate that customers present themselves consistently across various data sources. Using data sources such as the Financial Conduct Authority, charities commission, and Open Government-licensed data, companies can expect better understand who they are doing business with and have confidence in their customers.
