Regulation in the area of Financial Crime prevention AML/CFT has never been so demanding. As a result, compliance-related costs are increasing and require more internal resources. At the same time technology, automation of services and expertise have evolved in such a way that banks can outsource their compliance activities to realise significant efficiency gains. Over 500 banks worldwide have chosen to do so by implementing Sanctions Screening, the SWIFT solution for transactions screening.
Know You Customer (KYC)
Regulatory compliance is a fact of life for financial institutions, and correspondent banking has been heavily affected by a multitude of new requirements. High on the list is Know Your Customer (KYC) compliance, which refers to due diligence activities that financial institutions must perform on their counterparties in order to do business with them.
SWIFT has developed a global KYC Registry to help its users address this challenge. The main goal of this new service is to enable you to reduce complexity, increase transparency, save time and cut costs. It has been live since December 2014 and more than 2800 entities globally have already registered. The Middle-East has been mentioned by some major correspondent banking players as a key region to be on the KYC Registry.
