Financial Services & Banks

Commercial finance brokers or lenders face a myriad of challenges. If they lose a client to insolvency, it’s a disaster—the broker’s reputation is in tatters and the lender is out of pocket.
Plus, they need to comply with a myriad of AML regulatory requirements. If they don’t, they could face a fine or even prison.

Red Flag Alert’s business intelligence platform helps commercial finance brokers and lenders make better decisions by allowing them to accurately assess each company’s credit and AML risk. It also allows them to increase their revenue by identifying businesses that are most in need of financing.

Data That Powers Financial Services & Banks

For business development teams this level of insight can be helpful when preparing pitches for new opportunities. For example, it is invaluable when generating deal flow in the M&A space; being able to advise on acquisition targets in depth can help M&A departments win projects and keep their deal flow high. It is just as effective at enabling the sales team of an insurance broker to segment the market into businesses which have a particular type of risk profile.
