The KYC challenge

It’s a huge challenge for financial institutions to keep up with ever-changing global KYC regulation – and a delicate balancing act to ensure effectiveness, manage costs and use resources efficiency. But SWIFT is helping banks of all sizes and locations to do just that.

Our solutions

Our KYC solutions provide access to the most complete and accurate KYC datasets on a secure global platform. Large banks spend less time collecting data, and more time evaluating the risks associated with existing relationships and new clients.

And, contributing data to the KYC Registry enables smaller banks to demonstrate transparency and compliance to their correspondents, strengthening business relationships, while lowering associated costs.
