What is Know Your Customer (KYC)?

What is Know Your Customer?

KYC (Know Your Customer) is a standard of customer’s identity verification performed on a frequent basis to eliminate risks associated with corruption, bribery and other illegal financial activities. It’s also a demand of the international AML (Anti-Money Laundering) regulations.

Who is Impacted by KYC Compliance?

KYC regulations apply to most finance-related institutions like car-sharing services, banks, insurance corporations, etc. Regulators are demanding businesses to introduce tough “due diligence” procedures, policies and systems to monitor, assess and manage risks posed by clients and preventing financial crime from happening.

But, as technology develops further and the finance industry itself continuously creates new concerns are proving the KYC solutions in place becomes inefficient as regulators push the boundaries of compliance because of new concerns.

Failure to meet the KYC/AML compliance standards generally leads to huge fines, huge remedies, irrevocable reputational losses and temporary suspension.

Artificial Intelligence and KYC/AML Compliance

As a result of the continuously rising number of required checks makes automated identity verification inevitable. With recent technologies leveraging artificial intelligence, flexible integration, advanced biometric checks and specialized human assistance if required, streamlines the user experience and helps balance the high conversion rate with long-term regulatory compliance.
