Global transactions and regulatory scrutiny are compelling companies to examine their business relationships in order to assess risk and comply with regulatory mandates.
Failure to adequately investigate agents, business partners, and clients - and to understand how they operate - can expose organisations to reputational damage, operational risk, government investigations, financial penalties and potential criminal liability.
Astrus, KPMG's secure on-line due diligence tool, provides a robust and cost-efficient way to obtain information and assess risks associated with customers, agents and counterparties.
Astrus uses advanced search technologies to scour an extensive range of on-line public data sources, global sanctions and regulatory enforcement lists, corporate records, court filings, and press and media archives. Important integrity and reputational information is identified and interpreted by our dedicated analysts to assess reputational, regulatory and jurisdictional risk on a global basis.
