Know Your Customer (KYC) regulations refer to the ever-more complex due diligence financial institutions and corporates must carry out in order to verify business counterparts and ensure that they operate in a lawful, compliant manner.

The Anti-Money Laundering (AML) obligations go one step further - they are specifically aimed at preventing financial institutions from being used by criminal elements to launder money.

KYC / AML regulations are time-consuming to implement and costly to get wrong; firms that fail to undertake the appropriate due diligence and implement the right surveillence procedures face financial repercussions, heavy reputational damage and even imprisonment. 

Thomson Reuters delivers a comprehensive, robust set of services designed to help you identify and verify counterparts under KYC and AML.

We provide extensive, accurate counterparty and entity risk data, designed to give you clear visibility into the organization structures of entities around the world, their subsidiaries, joint ventures and affiliates.
