Focus on KYC
As one of the largest traders in physical commodities, UNICOR has a reputation for the strong, consistent manner in which it conducts the logistics of its business. Coupled with this is our ability to collaboratively work with our customers and partners.
Key to these effective partnerships is our insistence on a prudent “Know-Your-Counterparty” (KYC) evaluation prior to execution of any contract or engagement in formal business dealings. In so doing, we seek to take a measured and conservative approach to our risk management.
Our KYC evaluation is multi-faceted, designed to understand our counterparty's commercial strength, compliance standing, and extending to incorporate our own sense of ethics into our assesment.
Similarly, UNICOR prudently follows a program to conduct appropriate Due Diligence prior to entering any investments, acquisitions or joint ventures.
With UNICOR's world-wide business activities, we recognize the challenges that can arise in sourcing materials in or near to areas affected by conflict and / or other governance issues. In this regard UNICOR has implemented procedures to conduct various degrees of enhanced due diligence in all its business dealings in or around these jurisdictions. In particular, UNICOR seeks to regularly investigate its commodities supply chain to help ensure that UNICOR in no way contributes to human rights abuses or violence or exploitation in conflict affected areas. Further, within this framework, UNICOR applies its due diligence to assure that any counterparties we may work with are not the subject of legal sanctions.
UNICOR operates in a number of countries around the globe and is committed to protecting your data, respecting your privacy and dealing with your information in a fair and lawful way.
