Reduce risk and increase efficiency with perpetual KYC

Maintaining an accurate view of a customer and mitigating risk is essential to safeguard against financial crime. However, periodic refresh cycles and remediation workloads are unmanageable, resulting in an unknown exposure to risk.

Organizations are moving towards an event-driven approach to performing KYC. Perpetual KYC (pKYC) involves monitoring for changes and investigating alerts from a wide range of channels, from internal systems to transaction monitoring and sanctions screening. When an alert requires further review Encompass refreshes the CDI profile, providing real-time information for material risk assessment. This improves compliance by enabling KYC to be prioritized on customers where their risk profile has changed.

It is a journey to get to pKYC that offers incremental gains. A complete digital KYC profile built by Encompass at onboarding provides the foundation that increases efficiency of refresh and remediation by removing the need for KYC to start again.
