Client Identity Validation
Before working with a new client, you must prove their identity actually exists and confirm that they are allowed to do business in your country. Making these checks digitally gives you the most accurate information on your client.
Please note: digital client onboarding should be incorporated into your business’ overall approach to anti-money laundering and should not be seen as a stand-alone AML solution.
No chance of human error
Make an informed decision about your client using the AMLCC client identity validation checks via Equifax. All you need to do is put in the details you have about your client, such as their name, address and date of birth. Equifax then checks your client’s details with multiple sources, before coming back to you with an answer.
- Accurate & fast results that are automatically stored in your client’s AMLCC profile.
- High risks are spotted & guidance given on how to reduce the risk or report your client.
- No need to meet your client in person.
We also offer Biometric checks, to confirm that your client is the person they claim to be. Learn more.
