NNEK has a large, growing client base and was looking for a module that would allow them to easily and quickly audit and monitor their clients under the Wwft and Sanctions Act. The integration with SCOPE CDD made this possible.
Within their own system, they can screen their clients along various (sanction) lists. For example, they can look at whether the client is a politically prominent person (or is related to a politically prominent person), whether the client has been in the news negatively, is under the supervision of a law enforcement officer, and more.
In addition, clients can be placed on a so-called monitor list. As soon as a "hit" is found with a (sanction) list, a notification is made in the system. This allows NNEK to keep the client profile and risk assessment up-to-date. The requirements from the Wwft and Sanctions Act can thus be easily met.
“The SCOPE CDD solution can be quickly and properly integrated into our platform due to the extensive API, and SCOPE provides the necessary support and guidance in this regard", said Hessel de Haan, head of ICT at NNEK.
Why chose SCOPE CDD
NNEK did extensive research into available options in the market, preconditions from functionality, technology, privacy, and data protection, and also talked to fellow asset managers about their experiences. The choice finally fell on SCOPE CDD because of the price/quality ratio of the solution and the good integration possibilities with NNEK's existing platform.
Compliance Officer Erik Teusink of NNEK states, "It gives our organization peace of mind, that daily our clients are screened along the various (sanction) lists”.
Looking back on a successful collaboration
Meanwhile, NNEK already has more than 25,000 thousand clients on the monitor list, including natural persons and companies. The fine cooperation between NNEK's professionals and ours has ensured that full use can be made of the integrated solution to their satisfaction.
NNEK has been active in wealth management since 1986 and its core values are down-to-earth, driven, and accessible. In cooperation with independent financial advisors, they guide customers in building up assets. By building up assets, customers can achieve their (financial) goals, for example, help their (grand)children with their study financing, build up a better pension, or 'just' enjoy financial peace of mind.
