> We are not all equals in front of KYC and Onboarding procedures.

A successful retail entrepreneur from Nigeria who is now a multi-millionaire faces difficulties to pass KYC and onboarding process with global financial institutions. Lack of reliable source of wealth information, operations in high-risk jurisdictions, confusion over family name and association with convicted criminals, negative news campaigns orchestrated by local competitors – all of these elements may create false-positives with KYC and compliance teams and eventually hamper the ability of the HNW entrepreneur to access certain financial services.
Wealth Origins bridges the gap between compliance false positives and the reality of the subject's profile and situation.

> M&A Transactions with UHNW risk being derailed

A European private equity fund is looking to acquire a large business in the Middle East owned by a successful Arab UHNW businessman. Complex family structures, unclear source of wealth, indirect connections with PEPs (Politically Exposed Persons), confusion with different people with the same name, negative news which may or may not apply to the subject individual, etc. These elements lead the buyer to question the feasibility of their acquisition – and the deal may never happen.
Wealth Origins brings the level of clarity and depth of information required to allow the deal to progress.

> Are you the target of a professional fraudster or con artist?

Ponzi schemes artists, conmen, convicted scammers and criminals often pose as HNW or UNWH in front of banks, lawyers, investors, companies, business owners with the covert intention of defrauding them or using them to commit a fraud. Bernie Madoff's Ponzi scheme, which likely ran for decades, defrauded thousands of investors out of tens of billions of dollars.
Investors put their trust in Madoff because he created a front of respectability. He served on the board of directors of the Securities Industry Association and was chairman of its trading committee. He was a founding board member of the Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation (DTCC) subsidiary in London, the International Securities Clearing Corporation. Madoff was active in the National Association of Securities Dealers (NASD) as chairman the board. He was a prominent philanthropist who served on boards of several non-profit institutions.
Wealth Origins allows you to screen HNW/UHNW to make sure you are not the target of a sophisticated fraud or scam.
