The world of AML/CFT compliance is changing rapidly and with good reason. With increased scrutiny of supervisory authorities and a notable emphasis on enforcing regulations, remaining compliant is a challenging task, and one that requires investment and continuous training.
We recognise that the compliance responsibilities of small and medium sized Subject Persons may be daunting. PwC is offering an outsourcing service of your Customer Due Diligence (CDD) obligations in terms of AML/CFT regulations.
The PwC KYC team brings together a dedicated and experienced team of professionals. The team will assist you in collating, screening and reviewing all necessary client due diligence documentation in line with local regulations and your procedures. Our offering may also include, should it be required, ongoing monitoring of your customers to ensure that KYC documentation is kept up-to-date in line with local regulations.
Outsourcing your KYC onboarding process to our team will give you the comfort that you are in compliance with your obligations, whilst giving you the opportunity to remain focused on what you do best - growing your business.
Step 1 - You may inform your prospective customer that the onboarding process will take place and request the KYC documentation as per your policies & procedures.
Step 2 - PwC is provided with the KYC information and documentation collected and such is verified and client screening is carried out.
Step 3 - You will be provided with the completed client profile and findings of the process carried out by the team.
Step 4 - You will decide on whether to onboard the prospective customer or otherwise.
Step 5 - Should it be required, we will provide ongoing monitoring services to ensure that the KYC documentation of your customers is kept up-to-date in line with local regulations.
The process may be tailored according to your requirements.
The risk of non-compliance with Anti-Money Laundering (“AML”), Counter Financing Terrorism (“CFT”) and Know Your Customer (“KYC”) requirements continues to increase, and as evidenced by a number of high profile fines and investigations in recent years, firms are increasingly under pressure to identify new methods and means to manage their AML/CFT risks more effectively.
