Mascap teams up with Shufti Pro to elevate security and trust in investment management

Shufti Pro is an award-winning ID verification service provider, eliminating identity fraud from the financial sector.

Our new partnership enables Mascap to ensure a secure customer onboarding process, eliminating identity fraud from the financial sector.

Mascap provides all kinds of investment management solutions to clients. They enable customers to invest in the country’s Web3, Real Estate, Healthcare and Forex industries online from anywhere in the world. Ranked among the UAE’s largest asset management companies, they have helped thousands of people in investing. However, operating an asset management company in this era of online fraud is challenging.

“Our Shufti Pro journey started with the desire to ringfence MASCAP’s ability to identify risk and mitigate it at the first point of contact – onboarding. I truly believe this is the core of a good business, especially in the financial services industry, setting the tone for the entire business – client relationship for the foreseeable future. This served as the basis for choosing Shufti Pro with its ease of use, speed, and efficiency of returning results. A lack of false positives, and a user-friendly dashboard with useful insights help us manage and strategically direct MASCAP on the path to success. The ability to create and export clear reports as well as obtaining a bird’s eye view of our database, turned Shufti Pro into one of our most valued tools”
Elza Iorga, Chief Compliance Officer, Mascap Group

With the evolution of the digital landscape, it has become easier than ever for fraudsters to commit ID fraud whilst maintaining anonymity. An identity scam in this field can cause significant financial loss to both customers and businesses. Shufti Pro understands these challenges and offers a robust online fraud solution. Through state-of-the-art KYC/AML technology and AI-driven IDV solutions, the company helps businesses strengthen the fight against ID fraud and financial crime within the finance industry.

This partnership will integrate Shufti Pro’s award-winning KYC/AML solutions into Mascap’s platform. The solution will authenticate Mascap clients through a variety of checks, including risk assessment, document and biometric verification, AML screening and other various KYC checks, enabling the company to comply with global compliance regulations and fostering trust among investors. Moreover, while the conventional verification method can be time-consuming and prone to human error, Shufti Pro’s solutions are automated and boost the process from weeks or days into seconds, helping businesses implement fast and reliable verification measures.

“Given the fact that 1.7 million ID theft reports occur every year, it’s essential for an asset management company like Mascap to equip a secure identity verification solution, and Shufti Pro is there to help them fight against ID scams. With our robust and AI-driven solutions, Mascap can ensure a secure customer onboarding whilst eliminating all kinds of ID scams,”
Victor Fredung, CEO of Shufti Pro
