    KYC involves a number of processes that need to be managed:

    Collection of client information

    • Firms need to decide how much data they need to collect on each client. This needs to vary acording to the risk profile of the client
    • Identify the type of client- legal entity or person
    • Provide fields to enter the Client name, address and other contact details
    • Define the internal team including Matter Manager, Client Partner, MLRO and additional escalators if needed
    • Collect client risk assessment information including country, referrer and type of business
    • Connect record to existing client number for existing matters

     

    Internal conflicts checks

    • Collect the details on the checks
    • Record any links to checking data and documents

     

    Collection of information on the benefical owners

    • Define each BO and collect relevant information
    • Store any ID documentation

     

    Checking against registries

    • Companies house, BVD, Yellow pages, Google..

     

    Checking for sanctions

    • EU Sanctions list
    • Need to re-check all live clients every 24 hours

     

    Risk assessment, escalations, decisions and declarations

    • Collect declarations for each BO.
    • Do not allow the process to complete without each member of the team completing declarations that they have completed their obligations

     

    Creation of Client/Matter number and DM Workspaces

    • If successful - create working environment and copy over any documents collected as part of the compliance process
