Why Country Risk Intelligence Is Critical To Your KYC Programme

To really know your customer, you need to know where they come from.

Adhering to the FATF definition of a risk based approach requires your organisation to define the risk it is exposed to by keeping track of the places it operates in, directly and through agents and partners, and understand the enhanced risks posed by its markets and spheres of operation.

Country risk intelligence also delivers a strong competitive edge in a globalised trade network, where sophisticated data on long-term political, financial and societal trends are critical to managing risk more effectively and unlocking superior economic performance – particularly in unstable or emerging economies.
