Ravenscroft has become the first company in the world to introduce a specific new client screening solution, which has been developed in the Channel Islands.
The RiskScreen system was developed by Channel Islands-based KYC Global Technologies.
“Ravenscroft’s growth and success has been built on delivering the services which our clients want and not what we think they need, whilst at the same time ensuring that we are compliant with regulation and legislation,” said Ravenscroft’s money laundering reporting officer Guy Hardill.
“We now have 5,000 clients and billions of pounds of assets under management and this, together with the constant changing AML requirements, meant we needed a more efficient approach to monitoring. We wanted to identify a solution which would meet our exacting technical requirements, now and into the future, and to find a company that shared the same customer service values as us.”
CEO of KYC Global Technologies Stephen Platt said: “RiskScreen automatically compares the entire customer base of an institution against the world-leading Dow Jones sanctions, PEP and watchlist database. This enables firms to screen their entire customer base automatically, saving huge amounts of time over the manual alternative and increasing protection against money laundering, corruption and terrorism financing risk.”
Mr Platt added that the product was designed to eliminate the most common causes of AML failure: “At KYC Global Technologies, our products reflect decades of experience in helping firms deal with the fallout of regulatory failings. Our Batch Screening tool was designed after extensive consultation with the finance industry locally and further afield; in building it we have addressed all of the most common complaints concerning existing batch screening products.”
