Encompass concludes UK North America Roadshow
On Friday, the Department for Business and Trade (DBT) concluded its North America Roadshow 2023 in Glasgow, marking the end of a 12-day tour that covered 12 UK cities.
The aim of the Roadshow was to promote export deals between the UK and the US and Canada, with experts delivering presentations and interactive sessions to offer guidance on exporting, trade negotiations, and the economic outlook.
Scottish fintech Encompass Corporation, a leading provider of the Know Your Customer (KYC) automation platform, was selected as a trusted partner for the Roadshow, representing both a prominent Scottish technology company and a North American success story since its expansion to the region in October 2021.
During the Glasgow session, Encompass representatives discussed the company's active involvement in the UK Government's efforts to promote UK financial services overseas, including a fireside Q&A session on FinTech opportunities in North America.
The event also featured practical advice from legal, banking, and tax industry experts on opportunities in the North American region, with the National Association of State Procurement Officials presenting on demystifying US State procurement.
Encompass has been serving the North American market since its regional launch in late 2021 and has experienced significant growth while operating from New York under President, North America, Alex Ford, including receiving industry recognition such as the AML Impact Award for Best Know Your Customer/Business (KYC/KYB) Innovation from Aite-Novarica Group last year.
