Due Diligence Repository to Provide KYC Data for Compliance

A new Due Diligence Repository has been created to provide banks with ‘know your client’ data needed to carry out compliance checks.

Says Kerry Hewson, publishing director of Bankersalmanac.com, “The demands of Know Your Customer standards and Anti-Money Laundering measures mean it is becoming increasingly important for banks to have adequate controls, procedures and audit trails in place to protect themselves from reputational, operational and legal risks.”
