Volution portfolio company FullCircl, the Customer Lifecycle Intelligence platform that helps financially regulated businesses do better business, faster, has announced the acquisition of W2 Global Data Solutions, a provider of real-time digital solutions for global regulatory compliance. The acquisition strengthens FullCircl’s compliance suite and accelerates the company’s ambition to become the market leader in smart customer onboarding solutions for regulated businesses.
The combined company now provides coverage on entities located in 160 countries, offers broader market appeal and new opportunities to target consumer-related finance segments such as personal finance, gaming, gambling, and crypto. W2 brings 120 customers to FullCircl’s 600-strong customer base, with no overlap.
Speaking about the acquisition, Andrew Yates, CEO at FullCircl, commented: “Today we are excited to announce the latest milestone in the growth of our company, with the completion of our acquisition of W2. W2 shares our vision to help regulated businesses mitigate risks and deliver next-generation onboarding that meets both customer expectations and the compliance requirements of our rapidly changing world. This is great news for customers of both W2 and FullCircl, who will benefit from enhancements that will transform their compliance and risk management processes. We look forward to welcoming our new colleagues and together building on our combined expertise to deliver something truly game changing.”
James Codling, Managing Partner at Volution added: “It’s an exciting time for FullCircl. The acquisition of W2 significantly enhances FullCircl’s capabilities and it isn’t the only good news for the company. In recent weeks FullCircl has teamed up with The British Insurance Brokers network (BIBA) to launch ‘SmartBroker’, a platform to provide insurance brokers with comprehensive company information and insights for businesses in the UK and Ireland. In addition, FullCircl is working with ComplyAdvantage to offer a new customer lifecycle management solution providing global financial institutions with a suite of KYC and anti-money laundering tools. We are delighted for Andrew and the team on their continued success.”
