2nd Bi-annual 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 on-boarding 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.
