Wayne Johnson, CEO and co-founder, Encompass, said about the new investment announcement, “Beacon Equity Partners is the perfect match for Encompass, with this investment enabling us to continue our rapid growth journey whilst investing across our business to meet demand. The expertise Joe and Beacon bring in growing global companies is of great benefit, particularly as we work towards formally entering the North American market in 2021 – a significant milestone for Encompass.”

The collaboration is expected to help customers in streamlining KYC processes, enhance the quality of risk assessments, and reduce compliance costs.
