Enhanced Due Diligence (EDD)

Enhanced Due Diligence (EDD) is an advanced investigative process that goes beyond standard due diligence measures. It involves a thorough examination of individuals, entities, or transactions to uncover hidden risks and potential threats. EDD employs a combination of advanced technology, comprehensive research, and specialized analysis to provide a more detailed understanding of the subject’s background, associations, and potential vulnerabilities.

EDD is typically employed when dealing with high-risk customers, politically exposed persons (PEPs), individuals from higher-risk jurisdictions, complex ownership structures, and transactions that exhibit unusual patterns. By delving deeper into these areas, EDD aims to mitigate risks associated with money laundering, fraud, corruption, and other financial crimes.

Key elements of Enhanced Due Diligence may include:

  1. Ultimate Beneficial Owner (UBO) Verification: Identifying the true owners and controllers of entities through thorough investigations and assessments.

  2. Source of Funds/Wealth Verification: Tracing the origin of funds and wealth to ensure they are legitimate and not derived from illicit activities.

  3. In-depth Background Checks: Scrutinizing an individual’s personal, professional, and financial history to uncover any adverse information.

  4. Analysis of Complex Structures: Evaluating complex ownership arrangements, trusts, and nominee entities to understand their true nature and purpose.

  5. Adverse Media Screening: Searching a wide range of sources, including news articles and social media, to identify any negative information associated with the subject.

Enhanced Due Diligence is a critical tool for businesses and financial institutions aiming to make informed decisions, ensure regulatory compliance, and safeguard their reputation. By conducting a more comprehensive analysis, EDD provides valuable insights that help organizations assess and manage risks effectively.
