Meeting the digital challenge of KYC compliance

Many fund managers are uneasy with their exposure to compliance risks relating to money laundering and other financial crime, because in many cases existing KYC and AML controls rely on manual checks, and because the tools they have at their disposal are in many cases 'black box' systems that they must trust to deliver results without being able to verify the methodology they use and the timeliness and completeness of the data they employ.

 

At EFA, we believe that our clients should not be left in the dark and we have long realised that purely manual AML and KYC systems are sub-optimal, with patchy records and inefficient practices a source of concern and risk for fund groups of all sizes. We offer a new and unique digital service designed to maximise the efficiency of know-your-customer controls and measures to curb money laundering and the financing of terrorism - and embrace a combination of technology and human expertise that is destined to become the norm for financial institutions in the future.

 

Our AML/KYC service is designed to make the identification of information gaps substantially easier, significantly reducing the time required for audits, boosting the granularity of information available and simplifying risk-scoring procedures. Our automated screening and risk-scoring features help lower the risk of compliance failures and regulatory sanctions, for example if politically exposed persons have not been thoroughly vetted.

 

Digitalisation and automation is destined to transform what is too often a manual and time-consuming process, and to free up our AML specialists to conduct high added-value tasks such as understanding fund structures better, rather than spend time on standardised, repetitive activities.
