Product sheet: KYC / CIP compliance

Fraud is increasing and fraudsters are becoming more and more sophisticated. Knowing who you are doing business with is imperative. Ensuring your financial institution or business complies with the latest regulations and internal policies can be daunting and incredibly challenging.

We understand—and we’re here to help.


What is Know Your Customer?

Know Your Customer (KYC) is the due diligence and regulation that financial institutions and regulated companies must perform to identify their clients. KYC ensures that your organization can identify and verify your customers and protect your business from illegal activities like money laundering and terrorism financing.

KYC requires financial institutions and businesses to establish and validate each customer's identity, understand the nature of the customer's activities, make sure the source of funds are legitimate and assess the risk of potential money laundering associated with each customer.

Banks should regularly re-evaluate and refresh KYC programs to ensure they are meeting all regulatory requirements.
