Global wealth manager UBS is the latest company to engage the services of Lawyer Checker in a bid to fight the criminal conveyancers.

With a 150-year heritage in wealth and asset management, UBS has registered with risk and compliance provider Lawyer Checker in a bid to minimise the risk of vendor conveyancer fraud on transactions when sending mortgage funds to law firms. An international brand, UBS places the utmost importance on ensuring the protection of client money is at the top of its client service agenda.

Cyber-crime is prolific now; UBS recognise this and through the use of the Lawyer Checker system, it has an additional resource with which to mitigate the risk of losing client mortgage funds to fraudsters.

We are currently running a consultation on the IGR which continues until 9 February.
