Customer due diligence (CDD) and Financial crime – Overview

The term ‘financial crime’ refers to a broad set of legislation requiring that Financial Institutions (FIs) proactively monitor their clients in order to prevent illicit funds passing through their accounts. A key component of the financial crime control framework is CDD which refers to the due diligence that FIs must perform to identify their clients and ascertain relevant information pertinent to doing business with them throughout the life of the relationship.
