Customer Due Diligence (CDD)
Better technology for deeper risk intelligence
Our AML compliance software includes APIs for integration with your onboarding systems to verify identities and search sanctions, politically exposed persons (PEPs), OFAC, and proprietary lists in real time. Real-time risk intelligence during onboarding is critical to protecting your business.
A good CDD process should include these seven elements:
- Full identification of customer and business entities, including the source of funds and wealth and beneficial ownership when appropriate
- Development of transactional activity profiles of each customer’s anticipated activity
- Definition and acceptance of the customer in the context of specific products and services
- Assessment and grading of risks at both customer and account levels
- Account and transaction monitoring based on the risks presented
- Investigation and examination of unusual customer or account activity
- Documentation of findings
In addition to the above, CDD processes should include periodic risk-based monitoring of the customer relationship to determine whether there are substantive changes to the original CDD information (e.g., change in employment or business operations)
Enhanced Due Diligence (EDD)
The details count
Enhanced due diligence has additional measures aimed at identifying and mitigating the risk posed by higher risk customers.
Enhanced due diligence (EDD) is a must for organizations looking to comply with anti-money laundering (AML) regulations, engage with new suppliers, vet parties involved in a merger or acquisition, or meet anti-bribery and anti-corruption obligations.
Alessa offers the ability to automatically order EDD reports from Refinitiv directly from the platform. This allows compliance teams to go beyond simply checking whether an entity is on a sanction or watch list and get detailed background information on individuals and businesses based on comprehensive research by the Refinitiv team.
