Feature Updates - Improved CDD & Trust tabs

2Shakes May Update - Improved CDD & Trust tabs

From Friday evening, 2Shakes will include our latest improvements to the CDD and trust tabs!  So, what can you expect to see?

  • The CDD tab will include a new Source of Wealth or Proof of Funds checkbox for any Enhanced Due Diligence clients. This enables you to easily record whether you have obtained Source of Wealth or Proof of Funds for EDD clients.
    NB: This change will affect new and historic EDD clients in 2Shakes. For historic EDD clients, you can easily tick you that you have obtained SoW/PoF when you next carry out Ongoing CDD.

  • Within the Trust tab, the default Trust type will change to Discretionary, and we have expanded types to include ‘Fixed’ Trust where appropriate. You will also be able to add people for ID Verification from within the tab itself.

Remember, these changes will be deployed tonight.  Find out more on the latest feature updates.

What's Next for 2Shakes?

Work is currently underway on our next feature, where we will be introducing an address finder to 2Shakes!  So, when you or your client go to enter address details, you will be able to auto-populate the address using the soon-to-be-integrated address finder. Our goal is to help make the process even simpler for you and your client too!
