Its ComplyData is a persistent repository of data and insights. The database enables to seamlessly explore the connections between individuals and business entities in a single, simple relationship structure to “identify the unseen” while continuously enriching profiles through linking and integrating siloed data. “We automatically in real-time collate data using algorithms based on the type of different risks and signals, which means better and more up-to-date data,” adds Delingpole. This means, with CompliAdvantage, businesses get accurate data which provides results in lower false negatives and false positives. “So, you get fewer misses of people you're meant to catch that you don't catch and fewer irrelevant hits,” he explains.
