What is KYC, and why is it so important?
KYC stands for Know Your Customer. The regulation is essentially a very important set of rules and procedures that financial institutions (such as government entities, banks, investment firms, and exchange companies) must follow to verify the identity of their customers.
The regulations are designed to help prevent financial crimes such as money laundering, terrorist financing, and fraud, but they also help organisation assess their risk levels.
Why is KYC regulation important?
The regulation is necessary because it helps to protect financial institutions and their customers from financial crimes that can have serious consequences, including loss of money, damage to reputations, and even harm to national/international security.
The regulation helps to promote transparency and accountability in financial transactions, which helps to build trust in the financial system.
It also helps to ensure that financial institutions comply with other regulations, such as anti-money laundering laws (AML) and tax laws.
Who does KYC regulation impact?
It also impacts individuals and businesses that use financial services provided by these institutions.
It is is especially important for high-risk customers, such as those who are politically exposed, those who live in high-risk countries, or those who have unusual financial activities.
