Automated KYB Checks

NorthRow’s Know Your Business (KYB) solution offers clients instant access to a world of international corporate, entity and personal data via a single API to help facilitate more efficient client onboarding.

How NorthRow’s Single API Works?

NorthRow validates companies in real-time in over 99 countries. We can access company shareholder information, financials, and company structure information whilst also performing in-depth AML checks & electronic identity verification checks on company directors and ultimate beneficial owners.


NorthRow also has the capability to continually monitor companies in certain territories, to notify our clients of any changes in company structure, beneficial ownership or directorships. We can issue these alerts in real-time helping to ensure you continue to remain compliant with money laundering regulations.

International Company Coverage

NorthRow continually adds new data sets to expand our company coverage further. Our breadth of coverage includes territories in Asia-Pacific, Africa, Europe, Latin America, North America and the United Arab Emirates.
