Our detailed, reliable information for third-party due diligence, AML and KYC compliance helps you minimise reputation damage and risk exposure.

We’re here to help you work more efficiently 

With more information on private companies than any other source, we can help you confirm a company’s identify fast. We also offer document ordering if you need more legal information or we don’t have a company’s record. 
We help you get to the data you need – such as beneficial ownership – fast and with helpful visualisation tools. We can help you automate much of your on-boarding processes and create annotated and date stamped documents. 

Compliance Catalyst is the ideal timesaver. Use it to identify initial risk and then automate your high-volume, low-risk checks, liberating your researchers’ time to assess higher risks. Compliance Catalyst will also monitor entities for you and alert you to changes.
Our entire premise is based on helping you make better decisions more efficiently.
