As a global payments institution regulated by the UK Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), Earthport operates a robust and highly sophisticated compliance function at the service of the company, its clients, and partners.
Earthport’s service is transparent, secure, predictable and compliant. Our partners and clients benefit from our expertise in managing safe market entry, including licences, registrations, local partnerships and physical presence. Our international payments expertise ensures that all payments meet the myriad technical, due diligence and screening requirements of all the jurisdictions they touch upon. We negotiate the inevitable conflicts between the various regime requirements and even the risk appetites of the many players in any end-to-end international payments chain.
Earthport demands that its compliance function is an expert trusted advisor to the business, overseeing a robust, integrated and effective compliance risk control framework. Earthport understands that compliance is core to the offering; it is at the heart of what we do. We are not just about safely servicing client payments across their current business footprint, but we enable and support clients who want to move from domestic to international payments or who wish to expand regionally or continentally in other ways.
Earthport safeguards clients funds through prefunded client segregated accounts held with authorised credit institutions.
Earthport has extensive experience of all financial services regulatory compliance issues including AML/CTF, ABC, sanctions screening, CDD/KYC, data protection and fraud.
