Increasing cost, complexity and regulatory change continue to challenge firms implementing client onboarding and Know Your Customer (KYC) systems. With an effective strategy and a clearly defined pathway, it’s possible to gain a valuable competitive advantage whilst meeting those all-important compliance requirements. But how to get there?

With a myriad of different options out there and a clamour of information attempting to be heard, the practical implementation of a coherent client onboarding strategy can be challenging – especially in today’s environment, where both banks and their clients are attempting to acclimatise to a whole new way of working.

Data is a crucial cog in this wheel – and for many financial institutions, this can throw up a seemingly insurmountable barrier, with much in-house data still siloed, frequently uncategorised, and often disorganised. Learning how to source, cleanse and effectively govern operational and onboarding data is a vital step in the KYC process, and one that requires a holistic data strategy in order to implement.

This webinar will explore how to most effectively streamline and improve your client onboarding and KYC processes in order to meet today’s complex regulatory requirements and leverage increasingly pressing commercial imperatives. Join us to:

  • Evaluate the obstacles to effective onboarding and learn how to address them
  • Explore the latest developments in onboarding innovation and automation
  • Discover the benefits and cost savings available through streamlined KYC processes
  • Investigate the best ways of aggregating and effectively managing your onboarding and operational data
  • Identify best practice and create a path forward.
