Reimagining Know Your Customer (KYC)

Mini-Roundtable featured in Risk & Compliance Magazine

In this article, KPMG financial crimes and analytics leaders discuss improvements FS firms can make to optimize and reimagine their know-your-client or customer due diligence processes. Topics include:

  • Why financial services firms need to reimagine their existing KYC processes and explore the opportunity for process improvements.
  • To what extent should firms tailor KYC to their own risk appetite and how they can calibrate their systems while staying current with ongoing regulatory developments.
  • Ways the ‘perpetual KYC’ concept helps FS firms to evolve their KYC functions and the pros and cons for compliance teams of a shift to continuous KYC.
  • Advantages in digital identity verification.
  • Steps firms can take to make their KYC processes as scalable and efficient as possible and how the introduction of a managed services solution can help optimize operations.
  • Advice on how automating the KYC function can transition from a purely regulatory business function to becoming a driver of quality.
  • Technologies and approaches that will underpin the frameworks adopted by FS firms and predictions for KYC processes in the years ahead.
