KYC challenge: Adopting a new approach to KYC: perpetual KYC
Financial Institutions are required to review every customer relationship on a periodic basis. High risk customers are reviewed every year whereas medium and low risk customers are typically reviewed every two to three years. Over the years, failure to perform periodic reviews on customers has resulted in monetary fines and reputational backlash.
Adopting a new approach to KYC: perpetual KYC
Perpetual Know-Your-Customer (P-KYC) is an approach, powered by technology, that enables automation across the end-to-end KYC review process, leaving only a small subset of the more complex cases that require some degree of human intervention. P-KYC performs ongoing monitoring of a customer’s profile by validating previously collected information and continuously identifying and assessing changes (regardless of materiality). Therefore, by applying new and existing technologies to the KYC process, refreshes can be made more frequently with greater efficiency. In some cases, through the adoption of P-KYC, FIs can achieve savings of up to 60%-80%.
