One place to share and access KYC data

Submit KYC data that conforms to global standards

The data fields and documentation within the registry support a global standard for correspondent banks, non-bank financial institutions (NBFIs) and corporate KYC. Structuring KYC data in accordance with a common standard significantly reduces the time and complexity associated with multiple data requests.

Communication function

Provide only the necessary data

When registering using our entity-type questionnaire, you'll only need to provide the KYC data and documents your regulators ask for.

Leverage adverse media for comprehensive review

Institutions who are using media to support their KYC checks can subscribe to our value-added service to view adverse media linked to the entity via the KYC Registry. This public information is easily accessible through the KYC Registry thanks to Swift’s partnership with one of the world’s premier reporting services, Dow Jones Risk & Compliance. This service links globally-reported negative news stories and regulators’ notes to the relevant legal entity in the registry, enabling a fast and comprehensive review for all customer due diligence needs.
