What is KYC?

KYC verification stands for the Know Your Client or the Know Your Customer rule. Abbreviated to KYC, it is an internationally applied procedure that businesses use to verify client identity and assess suitability to reduce the risk of illegal practices, such as money laundering, and comply with banking regulations.

In the financial and banking sectors, KYC verification stands for a mandatory due diligence process that clients must go through before getting access to services provided by a business, particularly regarding AML (anti-money laundering) checks and detection of Politically Exposed Persons (PEPs).

The latest advances in technology allow companies to carry out their KYC verification services with ease from anywhere in the world. This reduces stress on clients having to send documents via postal services or visit a brick and mortar branch to verify their identity.

In Which Industries is KYC Applied?

AML and Know Your Customer requirements are applied to all businesses operating in the financial industry, regardless of location, where there is a possibility of money laundering or financial fraud. Companies failing to fulfill their Know Your Customer obligations may fall foul of financial crime legislation.

KYC requirements may apply to your company if it belongs to banks, credit unions, financial institutions, gambling sites and casinos, wallet providers and crypto exchange.
