Know Your Customer (KYC)
The words Know Your Customer in the financial sense describe the process by which a bank or financial institution checks the identity, background and other aspects of the source of wealth of potential and existing customers. Also known as KYC, legislation and regulation require firms to obtain evidence of identity of a customer at take-on and to keep a record of that evidence for as long as there is a relationship with a customer. Legislation and regulation also require a firm to keep up to date its knowledge of a customer throughout the life of the relationship, so that changes in the customer's activity can be assessed and dealt with – all with the principal aim of preventing Money Laundering and Financial Crime.
