    Financial Compliance

    International best practice standards mandate that FIs conduct EDD on all clients in high-risk markets. This approach may lead to a lack of diligence on a number of them and to a misallocation of resources on those that did not require heightened diligence. Using Sigma Ratings will allow FIs to allocate diligence efforts more effectively.
