Chair’s comments

  • It seems there is no real solution in sight for a more streamlined, automated, simple and automated KYC process
  •  KYC remains a manual, troublesome, time consuming and inconsistent process across and within bank groups.
  •  In addition lines between KYC and AML requests seem to be blurred.
  • Good news is that some banks are (much) better than others.
  • There seems to be a limited number of vendors daring to tackle the conundrum but SWIFT’s offering seems to be a good solution or alternative, albeit limited to SWIFT customers
