This Straight Through Processing (STP) of client onboarding allow compliance staff to focus their efforts on high risk, high value tasks.
Leveraging existing data from internal and external data sources, Digital KYC reduces the need for repeated manual requests for client data, delivering a streamline customer experience.
Greg Watson, Global Head of Corporate & Institutional Banking, Fenergo, said: “In today’s increasingly complex regulatory environment with heightened scrutiny, financial institutions shoulder the burden of highly manual KYC checks performed on an ad-hoc basis. Not only is this time consuming and costly, it leaves financial institutions open to risk. By listening to our client community, we have created a digital KYC solution that replaces error-prone processes with automation, digitalising client journeys while fulfilling regulatory obligations.”
