High Net Worths
High and Ultra High Net Worth Individuals pose some of the most challenging compliance cases. Onboard these clients quickly and efficiently with key First AML platform features:
- A pre-verified entity ecosystem that includes original SoW/SoF documentation
- Smart tasks that ensure a client's AML pack is interrogated properly and only relevant, additional information if requested
- Technology embedded expertise for both old and new forms of wealth and their wider ecosystems
- Bank-level security ensuring privacy and discretion.
New wealth types, such as NFTs or crypto favour anonymity. This is a problem for compliance officers trying to verify a source of wealth, or even a simple identity.
These wealth types are so new, most compliance officers don't have the exposure or training to understand them. Luckily First AML does.
Asset type and ecosystem context is accounted for with First AML. This is then provided in a simple to understand report for you to make a risk-based call on the individual.
