Accuity, a provider of global payment routing data, anti-money laundering (AML) screening software, and services, today unveiled Chinese language functionality for its web-based look-up tool, Online Compliance, powered by WorldCompliance.
A component of Accuity’s compliance solutions, Online Compliance allows users to identify and research sanctioned entities, politically exposed persons (PEPs) and other high-risk individuals and organisations. The tool details information such as: name, aliases, date of birth, place of birth, photographs, positions, family members, associates and company holdings. Entities are notated with precise source links to facilitate Know Your Customer (KYC) practices and enable further verification.
“We are very pleased to introduce Chinese language functionality in our PEP and enhanced due diligence look-up tool,” said Accuity’s Malcolm Taylor, managing director, Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) and Asia-Pacific. “We know that many of our current and prospective clients in China will appreciate being able to navigate Online Compliance in Chinese in order to more easily access critical information that will enable them to mitigate risk in their businesses.”
