Matrix Intelligence are regularly tasked by a UK-based Bridging Finance Company to conduct bespoke pre-transactional KYC checks / Red Flag Reports on potential borrowers.

To satisfy our Client’s requirements, we conduct Open Source research to ascertain the profile of the Borrowers and their affiliated companies; with particular focus on potential or active litigation (both criminal and civil). Our aim in doing so is to identify any Red Flags, authenticate provided documentation and inform our Client of any risks they may be facing.

The scope of our report includes:

  • Passport and ID Verification (including global ID and address confirmation).
  • Confirmation of property ownership.
  • Compliance and financial checks.
  • Civil litigation, criminal & court searches.
  • Corporate affiliations & red flags.
  • International fraud / sanctions.
  • Email verification & fraud check.
  • Risk profiling/adverse media search.
  • Searches are conducted in the UK & any other specified jurisdictions.


Our reports enable our Client to make informed decisions on potential borrowers and mitigate their exposure to potential reputational damage and financial losses at a very early stage.

Working with Matrix Intelligence

Matrix Intelligence undertake risk analysis, KYC and pre-transactional Due Diligence investigations prior to acquisitions, joint ventures or investments. Ideally, we are engaged at an early stage before legal costs and other professional fees are incurred; as this will mitigate the impact if adverse legal, financial or operational issues come to light.

We provide detailed and cost-effective reports, prepared by a team of specialists, to enable our clients to make informed and timely commercial decisions.
