Know Your Customer (KYC)

Your KYC compliance program needs to keep you on the right side of the regulators without increasing customer onboarding times and driving up costs. Meet that challenge with advanced technology, and unparalleled depth and breadth of content.​

Determining who you can and should do business with has significant cost, time, and resource implications for financial institutions. According to our recent KYC compliance survey, average annual spend on global KYC is reported as US$48 million and onboarding times remain lengthy, with banks reporting average times of 30 days.

Relying on a patchwork of resources may leave potential gaps in coverage where bad players can hide while putting your revenue and reputation at risk from regulators.

Perform KYC due diligence your way, when you choose, from a range of services and solutions that span the entire client identity process, enabling you to focus time, talent, and resources on your core business activities. We offer innovative technology along with world-class data that gives you the flexibility to scale your KYC programs to meet your evolving needs.
