For banks, investment managers and corporates
Lower client on-boarding costs
By utilizing economies of scale, our KYC managed service can offer significant cost savings on an end-to-end, in-house solution. Providing client identity information to financial institutions via KYC as a Service is free of charge for end-clients.
Efficient and consistent
Standardized identity document requirements provide consistency, resulting in less paperwork and administrative effort for both financial institutions and their clients. By managing the client identity process, we enable your staff to concentrate on revenue generating activities rather than managing client KYC processes.
Faster client on-boarding
Our centralized system provides access to data and documents that have already been requested by other members of the financial community, as well as Thomson Reuters on behalf of financial institutions. This central repository of client identity data saves time, reduces duplication of efforts, and allows financial institutions to conduct their own searches.
Secure and controlled access
A single set of documents and clear audit trail increases security of identity documents, specifically in terms of storage and dissemination. Permission-based access gives end-clients full control and visibility over who can access and see identity documents.
A future-proofed system
By offering a service that identifies and delivers the required documents to fulfill new regulatory needs, our KYC managed service ensures that you can avoid the cost and time expense of full-scale remediation, despite constantly changing requirements. Our KYC managed service has built in reporting and auditing capabilities that provide systematic proof of due diligence.
