Going global has never been easier: AsiaVerify and kompany partner to facilitate safer international business

Singapore RegTech innovator, AsiaVerify is proud to announce its partnership with global RegTech leader, kompany. The collaboration brings together the best in business verification technology to connect the East and West, saving clients time and money while enabling them to confidently expand into new markets.

As cross border compliance continues to be a time consuming and complicated task for many organisations around the world, regulatory requirements are simultaneously intensifying. New anti-money laundering laws throughout Asia are increasing the penalties for non-compliance as well as the requirements to be considered compliant. Therefore, both the monetary cost and reputational damage of non-compliance, makes trustworthy, up-to-the-second online business verification mission critical for organisations looking to accelerate competitiveness in their markets.

kompany CEO and Founder Russell E. Perry explains, “Too often we see teams building their Know-Your-Business processes on a foundation of company information that is incomplete or out-dated, exposing their organisations to significant risk. With kompany’s global register network at their disposal, clients of AsiaVerify are granted live access to primary source data on more than 115 million companies across 200 jurisdictions, ensuring business verification is always based on the most truthful, audit-proof information available.”

AsiaVerify is cementing its reputation as Asia’s most trusted business verification provider with unrivalled primary source access across the APAC region. Headquartered in Austria with offices in London, New York, and Singapore, kompany is the world leader for Global Business Verification and Business KYC (KYB).

Together, the two industry leaders complement each other to provide more clients around the world instant access to the highest quality, authoritative data and local expertise; all fully translated and in real-time.

Commenting on the partnership, AsiaVerify CEO Ficoal Dong said today, “We share a commitment to providing our clients the most effortless user experience with vastly improved business intelligence to keep your business flowing smoothly in an international context. In short, putting our clients ahead of the game.”

The two RegTechs are now working together to build a single KYB compliance blueprint across the APAC region.

“We are proud to partner with the KYB experts, kompany, as their Asia business verification partner of choice. By offering an expanded array of verification checks and data sources to provide our clients with enhanced global market reach and confidence. Going global has never been easier.” Finished Mr Dong.
