Enhanced Due Diligence Reports / Detailed KYC Background Checks in China

We have been providing our clients with high quality and cost effective enhanced due diligence reports (also known as background reports or background checks) on individuals and companies since 1999. We are now successfully dealing with an increasing number of requests for investigations in China.

If you are contemplating entering into a professional relationship with a partner or prospect, it is imperative to conduct enhanced due diligence investigations.

A Proximal Consulting enhanced due diligence report will confirm whether a customer or partner (prospective or existing) is providing you with complete and accurate information. Our detailed research will uncover any existence of criminal activity such as money laundering, corruption, terrorist financing or fraud.

It is important to realize that enquiries on individuals in China are severely restricted, which can make detailed AML KYC research very problematic. However we have developed advanced methodologies and extensive investigative tools to enable us to obtain critical and relevant intelligence on companies and individuals in China.

We also work with long-term and reliable associates who provide us with detailed in-country local intelligence.

In terms of our investigations and reports, we seek to confirm the following information in respect of individuals:

  • Address verification
  • Confirmation of personal details such as name in Chinese, date of birth and place of birth
  • Background information on the family of the subject of our report
  • Full details of business interests
  • Whether the subject should be viewed as a PEP (politically exposed person) and/or a close family member or associate of a PEP
  • Media references
  • Intelligence about confirmed or suspected links to criminal activities
  • Details about any allegations or verified intelligence about involvement in corrupt activities
  • Sanctions risks

Client confidentiality is of the utmost importance to us, and all of our enhanced due diligence checks in China are conducted in a totally discreet manner.

Our enhanced due diligence reports on Chinese individuals and corporate entities will not only ensure that the legal and regulatory obligations of our clients have been met but they are also designed to safeguard our clients from any financial, legal, operational or reputational risks.

All our enhanced due diligence reports are tailor-made to our clients’ requirements at a fixed price and within an agreed time frame.
