Know your customer (KYC) and customer due diligence (CDD) requirements are the most burdensome areas of anti-money laundering (AML) compliance for many firms. Because KYC-CDD processes are central to onboarding and understanding customers, they are also arguably the most strategic area of the AML compliance chain.
Evolution in AML technology and the development of modern KYC operations, far from reducing the complexity of KYC processes, has resulted in ever evolving challenges and an increase in the operational burden of KYC compliance. The use of next generation technologies for KYC-CDD has shown significant progress in answering this need.
