The way in which banks onboard corporate clients can impact many aspects of their business, from reducing time to revenue, to improving customer experience and loyalty, and to compliance with Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and Know Your Customer (KYC) regulations.
The accuracy of data used for onboarding customers is therefore a key differentiator for banks. Relying on primary source data that is legally compliant contributes to compliance peace of mind, while banks can make better decisions based on compliant data that is 100% accurate and continuously updated.
This is particularly important in the world of corporate onboarding, where vetting a company can be time and resource heavy, and a complex task with many moving parts. Accessing regulated and authoritative data from company registries to onboard a client in a timely manner is a complicated process that involves a series of manual checks. There are continual updates to regulations to comply with, such as the requirement for ongoing monitoring within the 5th Anti-Money Laundering Directive (5AMLD) as well as due diligence in ensuring that company data for KYC checks is up to date and accurate.
From a business perspective, banks are keen to onboard new customers as quickly as possible to maximise income and profit. An efficient process can also be a crucial differentiator in procuring loyal clients for a lifetime of service. Expectations for a real-time experience are growing in the corporate environment, just as they have in the world of retail and consumer banking.
This white paper explores how banks can deal with changing KYC regulations and the incoming 6AMLD; what technology can be utilised to assist banks achieve seamless corporate onboarding; and what stands to be lost, and more significantly, to be gained, with a seamless real-time onboarding experience.
