CLEAR for commercial lending

 Quickly conduct high-volume identity verification and risk assessment

Identify fraud with real-time information

Commercial lenders are facing a rapidly increasing volume of opportunities, a changing market, and constantly evolving underwriting standards—all within the context of increased documentation and compliance requirements.

Understanding the risks associated with commercial lending is extremely important and can help you safeguard against unexpected loss. With every loan it is important to first understand who the customer is and any risks they pose. Next, a lender must also confirm principal ownership, UCC’s, liens, judgments, and lawsuits/dockets.  

Thomson Reuters understands how important it is to quickly and accurately manage your lending risk and protect your organization. With Thomson Reuters CLEAR you can conduct high-volume identity verification, risk analysis, and flag any concerns for further investigation in minutes.
