Due diligence

Due diligence checks to verify customer identities are required to meet money laundering regulations, and to avoid dealing with sanctioned or risk-posing individuals. Effective due diligence will help your organisation display prudent and ethical financial conduct, and avoid reputational damage, fines and worse.
