In banking and financial services, Know Your Customer (KYC) operations are critical for anti-money laundering (AML) requirements. Regulators require an in-depth understanding of customers’ data such as ownership, controller and financial information, and have mandated strict standards of reporting and due diligence. Presently, this process of information gathering, collation, verification, and transaction monitoring is manual with large banks spending USD 1 bn annually on KYC operations. An automated kyc verification process is crucial to reduce operational effort and improve verification accuracy resulting in enhanced KYC compliance.

Our KYC software also assigns a confidence score to its output based on source of documents, and continuously learns from user actions. To aid regulatory reporting and assist checker validation, HOLMES E-KYC generates audit trail encapsulating entire case execution history and evidence.
