Trulioo expands reach in LATAM

Tuesday 18 October 2022 15:30 CET | News

Canada-based digital identity company Trulioo has updated its coverage across Latin America, expanding access to the Dominican Republic and Uruguay and strengthening data sources in Colombia and Mexico. 


The extended Latin American coverage will reportedly enable organisations to verify attributes such as age, identity, and address, all the while complying to Know Your Customer, Know Your Business, and AML regulations. As explained in the company press release, throughout LATAM, address standardisation may vary, thus raising a challenge when it comes to achieving high match rates. The Trulioo eIDV service standardises the address information to increase match rates.

Michael Ramsbacker, Trulioo chief product officer explained that ‘the establishment and expansion of identity data partnerships across Latin America is integral to our continued ability to meet the evolving needs of our customers around the world.’ The company official continued by stating that Trulioo intends to extend the improved consumer onboarding to companies doing business in Colombia, the Dominican Republic, Mexico, and Uruguay.

Openness for fintech and digital identity in LATAM

According to data shared by Trulioo, fintech activity across the region is thriving, increasing the need for reliable, easy-to-use identity verification solutions. The Dominican Republic experienced 129% year-over-year growth between 2017 and 2021 in its fintech sector, while Uruguay landed in the top 20 of the Global Fintech Index in 2021. Mexico and Colombia are leaders in fintech, holding the second- and third-largest hubs in Latin America, behind only Brazil.

Trulioo enables organisations to securely access more than 450 data sources around the world to perform identity verification for consumers and businesses. As detailed by the company, the Latin America additions and enhancements include 100% of adult population data in the Dominican Republic and Colombia, 90% of the adult population in Uruguay, and significant improvements to a key data source in Mexico that will provide substantial verification rate increases. This is on top of existing coverage in Brazil, Chile, Costa Rica, Ecuador, El Salvador, Peru and Venezuela.
