Data Quality Experts Partner with Experian to Tackle the Rise of UK Financial Crime.

DQ Global

DQ GlobalA desire to reduce the risk of financial crime is behind an exciting new partnership between leading CRM data quality experts DQ Global and Experian, the global information services company. The collaboration will provide clients easy to use solutions, to prevent the risk of UK financial crime (FinCrime), thanks to the integration of Experian!s KYC data with DQ Global’s suite of no-code fintech products. In turn, this allows FCA-regulated organizations to mitigate financial crime and achieve compliance.

Through this strategic partnership, Experian and DQ Global have launched DQ Compliance, a joint solution that enables the power of Experian’s FinCrime data to be used within clients’ own data ecosystems. The solutions enable a robust view of businesses, what they do, and the people behind them to help understand the compliance risk quickly.

Financial crime has risen significantly in recent years, with 2-5% of Global GDP estimated to be from money laundering. Fines totaling £10.8 billion due to FinCrime were handed out in 2020 and money laundering is estimated to cost the UK more than £111 billion a year. Recognizing the importance of combatting illicit financial activity, Experian and DQ Global have combined the former’s incredible data utilization and capabilities into the latter’s innovative Microsoft product suite.

Speaking about the partnership, Experian’s director of FinCrime Market Engagement Grant MacDonald said: “This is incredibly exciting and will transform the accessibility and speed of SMEs detecting and mitigating the impacts of financial crime resulting from incomplete, inconsistent, and incorrect customer data.”

Martin Doyle, CEO and founder of DQ Global, added: “We are excited to tackle the rise in financial crime through our combined forces with Experian and look forward to using our new DQ Compliance solution to help clients reduce costs and FinCrime risks.”
