KNOW YOUR CUSTOMER (KYC)

KYC or Customer Due Diligence is not only about identification and verification of your customer‘s identity. It is also a process during which you get to know your client better by collecting such information as residential address, contact details, purpose of the account with your organization, etc. If you serve business clients, you definitely want to know your customer‘s ownership structure, economic activity, source of funds, etc.

Usually financial institutions create KYC questionnaires to collect all the needed data. Then follows the process of information verification, customer screening and risk scoring.
