 New KYC-as-a-service solution using blockchain technology that will facilitate the customer onboarding process for financial institutions
With this proof of concept, this programme will demonstrate the benefits of using blockchain to reduce the costs of one of the most important burdens of our institutional clients: KYC and customer onboarding.
The integration of distributed ledger technology into compliance systems and processes could save financial institutions in compliance costs. Using blockchain technology, data security could be improved, manual processes could be digitized, customer onboarding documents could be verified for authenticity, the speed and accuracy of daily regulatory reporting to regulators could be increased, and digital identities could be created for companies.
Blockchain is about shared control and not just shared data. Blockchain also offers anonymity and security despite the shared control.
