Innovations in ID Verification, KYC Compliance, Client Onboarding & AML Monitoring

Traditional methods of identity verification are contributing to lengthy and expensive KYC and onboarding processes. Technological advances, regulatory requirements and business necessity are leading organisations to a point where they have to rethink the way identity works.

With so many financial services institutions embracing digital, the big challenge is bringing together information about each client, from multiple systems, to create one accurate client identity. Achieving this, while demonstrating robust and compliant KYC capabilities, is causing costs to spiral.

ECN’s Identity & KYC conference will translate current thinking about managing identity into specific business use cases, and will explore how you can turn this regulatory compliance issue into a real business opportunity. It will also provide a unique forum for senior-level executives to establish a coordinated, industry-wide response to today’s challenges of identity and KYC.Why attend?
