A path to KYC automation

Neugroup estimates that the average time spent on KYC in a typical MNC corporate treasury department is 25 hours/week. 

In this WEBchat Dan Matthies, Head of KYC at Bloomberg, explains how their solution solves this problem. Bloomberg Entity Exchange, which already has 3,000 firms and 250 banks on the service, provides a centralized, secure platform to enable multi-national corporations, who use multiple banks and operate in many regions around the world, to manage and share client data and documents with confidence. It takes a new approach by not standardising the answer, rather they standardise the way they store the information and not the processes.

The WEBchat covers:

  • What is KYC and what it covers today
  • How to automate the whole KYC process by standardising the data, not the processes
  • The data-centric Entity Exchange solution structure and processes
  • How KYC is likely to develop globally.

Bloomberg’s KYC solution was withdrawn in April 2019. This was a shame as their solution represented a new approach to delivering KYC for corporates.
