Know Your Client Services

Partnering with you during the onboarding journey

k k

Know Your Client (“KYC”) requirements are increasingly gaining attention by supervisory authorities and regulators, as part of the wider, collective efforts to ensure proper counterparty identification. Stricter obligations are being imposed on organizations globally, as part of the broader Anti-Money Laundering (“AML”) regulations, and industry players are nowadays expected to implement a comprehensive and strategic KYC operational model.

As part of this model and considering the number of counterparties onboarded every day, executing the KYC operational procedures internally can increase the cost of ownership (technology infrastructure, procedures, manpower) as well as the administrative burden for your organization. In addition to this, the associated regulatory framework is complex and is constantly evolving so maintaining the execution internally results to extra costs from the need to employ specialized resources.
