Sayari Labs – the leading provider of beneficial ownership and financial intelligence in emerging, frontier, and offshore jurisdictions – has recently partnered with Diligencia Group, a specialist information provider, focused on company data within the Middle East and Africa (MEA).

Financial institutions, multinational corporations, and providers of risk mitigation services are facing unprecedented pressure as they seek to effectively scale financial crime compliance and reputational risk programs across their global footprint. Sayari and Diligencia, respectively, have been at the forefront of this shift by providing the highest quality commercial and public records data coverage powering analytical decision-making and enabling business leaders to make the right choice in complex environments.

“To date, Sayari’s approach to providing UBO and financial intelligence for consumption at scale has been largely focused on Latin America, Eurasia, and offshore financial centers. We’ve always been impressed with Diligencia’s breadth of MEA coverage and their attention to data quality in complex jurisdictions like UAE, KSA, and Egypt. The network effect of bringing Diligencia’s MEA data into the Sayari platform is very exciting for us and our growing userbase.” Benjamin Power, COO, Sayari Labs, Inc.

“We are delighted to extend our data offering to the Sayari community, helping to empower organisations to make sound confident decisions. At Diligencia, our mission is to provide clients with a clear view of the facts because we believe that high-quality curated data from authentic, primary sources is always the best foundation for investigative research and commercial decision-making.” Patrick Lord, Managing Partner, Diligencia Group.
