While only some multinational corporates have the same financial crime prevention obligations as financial institutions, all companies face challenges when it comes to 3rd party relationship risk management – operational risk, bribery and corruption and increasingly ESG risk by association. Businesses understand that while threats to supply chain resilience are certainly disruptive, they are not as costly as the damage done to sales, a share price or brand image as a result of dealing with a 3rd party that is a threat to its reputation.
Taking ESG risk as an example, corporates not only need to think about ESG in terms of their own performance but also:
- The ESG risk in the investments they make – in projects, other businesses, in securities and other financial instruments they hold.
- The associative risk in the relationships they have, particularly with suppliers.
So whether it for ESG risk, bribery and corruption or financial crime, smartKYC makes the task of assessing and monitoring 3rd parties for each of these risks, simple, reliable and automated.
- smartKYC plugs into any and all of the sources a company would prefer to use to risk profile a 3rd party. Open web, deep web, ratings assessments, watchlists, corporate registries, shareholder databases and more.
- Because 3rd party networks are often global, smartKYC operates in any language to deliver the ground truth from sources ranging from Chinese, to Thai, to Hindi.
- Because these same networks are extensive, smartKYC can spot risk in batch mode and only alert risk analysts, on an ongoing basis, to developments concerning a 3rd party that merit attention.
smartKYC behaves as an in-house due diligence partner, automatically surfacing 3rd party risks as they emerge so that organisations can focus on running their operations with confidence and only respond to risk when truly required.
