Encompass Verify was selected by Griffins, one of the largest independent insolvency practices in the UK, to support them in their Know Your Customer (KYC) compliance.

Griffins, which has offices in London as well as Dubai, specialise in providing insolvency, litigation and forensic services maximising return to creditors through asset recovery. They have a broad range of clients including foreign governments, corporations and law enforcement agencies.

Prior to selecting verify, Griffins previously used encompass’ investigative software. Listed by Planet Compliance as one of the most influential RegTech firms, encompass supports compliance with international Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and Counter-Terrorist Financing (CTF) regulations by empowering their front line staff to meet the evolving regulatory requirements of the latest MLR 2017 update.

Danny Lee from Griffins said “Utilising leading RegTech software is fast becoming essential for complying with regulatory requirements.  Not only does automation significantly speed up the onboarding process, it frees up the valuable time of our compliance professionals and assists in developing a systemic risk governance approach to decision making. As a company, we are committed to using the best and latest technology, and signing up for encompass verify supports us in that.”

Paul Charmatz, Managing Director from encompass said “We are constantly adding new data providers to our platform ensuring we remain at the forefront of RegTech technology. We’re the only platform that can access all data providers via API and aggregate them into a single view for compliance professionals. We look forward to supporting Griffins’ compliance team as they roll out the use of encompass verify.”
