Know Your Customer has released an expanded version of its Know your Customer/Know Your Business (KYC/KYB) solution that covers company data and official incorporation documents from 123 countries worldwide. The data can be consumed using either Know Your Customer’s user interface or a single API.
The expanded service provides real-time access to local company registries across 123 countries including 41 in the Middle East, Africa and the Americas, and 82 in APAC and Europe, including potentially challenging registries for international businesses such as Hong Kong, Mainland China, Indonesia, the Philippines, Cayman Islands and British Virgin Islands. In total, customers now have access to company information on more than 180 million registered companies worldwide and 300 million official company documents.
“Our mission is to streamline business KYC operations and strengthen overall compliance through primary source data,” says Claus Christensen, CEO and co-founder of Know Your Customer. “With this coverage expansion, we aim to further support the global growth of our existing and future clients by simplifying and standardising their access to official company data worldwide.”
The company’s platform is based on a real-time graph database that maps the relationships of individuals connected to corporate entities under investigation, and includes automated data extraction and shareholder identification from official documents, as well as AI driven identification of ultimate beneficial owners across jurisdictions.
