2021 KYC & CDD (half-day) Forum

Practical guidance on using best practices and technology to streamline your KYC & CDD processes

Know your Customer (KYC) & Client Due Diligence (CDD) are at the heart of financial crime risk management within the financial services industry. Regulators are increasingly focused on the quality and appropriateness of KYC & CDD carried out both at client onboarding and review stage. After many years of legislative pressure, financial services businesses are still wrestling with the challenges presented by complex business models and relationships. This half-day forum will examine key issues faced by those working within this field.

Overview

Know your Customer (KYC) & Client Due Diligence (CDD) are at the heart of financial crime risk management within the financial services industry. Regulators are increasingly focused on the quality and appropriateness of KYC & CDD carried out both at client onboarding and review stage. After many years of legislative pressure, financial services businesses are still wrestling with the challenges presented by complex business models and relationships. This half-day forum will examine key issues faced by those working within this field.

This year’s KYC forum will look at developments in the KYC/CDD function, including technological advances, post-Brexit changes and also likely future developments in the industry.

As always, the event aims to combine key updates and practical top tips. Hearing from industry experts, delegates will have a greater understanding of the impact of geopolitical changes in the landscape, specifically in relation to KYC as well as increasing their knowledge around effective transaction monitoring. Finally, delegates will have a greater appreciation of how best to future-proof their CDD function.
