Discover why Lexis Diligence is an indispensable component in any Customer Identification Program.

If you do business with American financial institutions, you will be familiar with the CIP (Customer Identification Program) requirement that was implemented in 2003, which requires US financial institutions to develop a CIP appropriate to the size and type of its business. Many other countries have adopted similar 'know your customer' requirements since that time.

If you are involved with any type of international transactions, one of the risks you have to control is whether or not the individuals and companies you do business with are reliable. Performing customer due diligence checks is essential.

Lexis Diligence is a tool that lets you quickly onboard customers while staying compliant with international know your customer or CIP requirements.
