KYB-Specific Attributes and Objects

KYB and Identity Attributes are a family of attributes that are used to help financial institutions onboard and monitor their clients over time to meet Know Your Business (KYB) regulations.

Methodology and match precision

The KYB endpoint has industry-leading registration filing fill rates. This is because Enigma is able to successfully resolve operating names and addresses with legal names and addresses via its Entity Resolution systems tying websites, legal entity information, and operating information together. This enables accurate, high-coverage registration filing return rates because any combination of inputs can be combined to return high match.

Typically, Enigma can automatically surface registration filings on over 80% of customer samples. Enigma covers corporate registrations for all 52 states and jurisdictions (including Washington D.C. and Puerto Rico). As of January 2024, Enigma has information on:
~56M inactive registration filings
~43M active registration filings
~11M additional filings
