Kroll’s screening and due diligence solutions offer a cost-effective, high-quality, and programmatic approach towards assessing potential risks from new and existing customers, third parties, investments and partners.

We help clients onboard and manage the risks associated with new customers and third parties and ensure that we offer the right level of screening and due diligence solutions based on the risks inherent in the opportunity – from screening against sanctions and government watch lists to assess the reputation through review of public records and local human intelligence and source inquiries.

These solutions enable clients to take a risk-based approach towards a broad range of business needs: from supporting compliance with anti-money laundering (AML), know your customer (KYC), USA Patriot Act, Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), and UK Bribery Act regulations, to identifying potential risk factors in the early stages of considering new business relationships and investments.
