Systematic Approach to TM Look backs
Exiger utilizes a systematic approach and methodology, created with our clients and tailored to their unique needs. In weekly meetings for our transaction review and look back engagements, we consistently provide our clients with information that demonstrates our progress and budget against original expectations and estimates.
KYC and EDD Remediations
Establishing a sustainable KYC program amidst evolving regulatory demands is becoming more costly and challenging than ever for financial institutions.
A new wave of regulatory scrutiny has made money laundering and sanctions compliance a global necessity with billions of dollars in fines and penalties at stake. These heightened regulatory expectations to ensure compliance require periodic review and remediation of KYC and EDD information, which can overextend teams and interrupt the onboarding of new customers.
Exiger’s unparalleled foresight into regulatory trends, requirements, and the appropriate level of diligence give financial institutions the ability to leverage resources to ensure timely updates to KYC and EDD files.
