ID Verification and KYC
ID Verification is the first step in every financial and legal customer relationship. Financial institutions have legal obligations to ensure they know who they are serving. The principal concern being money laundering.
Responsible lending requirements
KYC is also important in gambling and gaming, where age verification is top of the regulator’s priorities.
Identity Verification is a requirement in the public sector when acquiring key documents such as driving licences, notice of marriage, passports, birth/death certificates.
Digital ID verification challenges
This environment of smart sophisticated digital components presents firms with three challenges:
How to integrate them all together to deliver a coherent customer experience.
How to manage the wealth of data that comes back.
How to manage the ‘maybes’ – those customers who don’t pass first time, but who firms want to serve if they can.
Being able to evidence their identity quickly and easily without the need for sending copies of ID documents.
Minimise the friction that KYC puts on the customer experience.
Risk & Compliance objectives
Meet, with evidence, MLRO and other regulatory obligations.
Make the digital identity onboarding process paper free.
