Enhanced Counterparty Due Diligence

Alaco Analytics’ counterparty due diligence combines blockchain analytics with traditional investigative techniques for clear, concise and in-depth risk reporting on potential investments, customers and partners. The purpose of this service is to deliver a balanced view of a counterparty’s reputation and track record, regardless of jurisdiction.

Our reporting draws on an array of publicly available resources to which we have access. As a subsidiary of Alaco, we have access to a staff of multilingual case managers and analysts who are highly experienced in obtaining and evaluating public information, and in assessing any potential bias or inconsistencies in that data.

Where elements of cryptocurrency are involved, we deploy our blockchain resources to uncover additional intelligence on the source and legitimacy of a counterparty’s wealth; or exposure to financial crime or suspicious transactions. Often this work is supplemented by discreet discussions with local contacts to gather additional information, make sense of it and deliver it in a useful, meaningful way. The end result is a bespoke, detailed and objective analysis of the issues at hand.

Sanctions & AML Reporting

Our sanctions and anti-money laundering reporting service is a fast, efficient method of assessing the risk profile of a counterparty. This service is designed to meet regulatory requirements and to provide insight on risks beyond those tied to a customer’s transactions. Our searches can be tailored to each jurisdiction, though in general our reports would cover the following checks:

•      Major global sanctions watchlists;
•      International databases of AML and financial crime data;
•      Local databases of regulatory and criminal information;
•      Local litigation checks, including of criminal litigation where available;
