Enhancing banking compliance: the crucial role of periodic KYC updates for non-clients

Author LOQR

In an increasingly interconnected financial landscape, Know Your Customer (KYC) compliance is a cornerstone in the banking sector. The significance of KYC processes must be balanced, especially concerning non-clients who maintain financial ties with banks and other financial institutions, such as shared credits or affiliations. At LOQR, we recognise the paramount importance of staying compliant and secure, and we are the right partner to shed light on the critical need for periodic KYC updates in such scenarios. 

The importance of periodic KYC updates

KYC compliance isn’t a one-time event; it’s an ongoing process crucial for mitigating risks associated with financial transactions. Accurate customer data is essential for verifying identities, conducting due diligence, and preventing fraudulent activities. Non-compliance with these regulations can result in significant financial penalties and reputational damage.
Maintaining accurate and up-to-date customer information (both for clients and non-clients linked to these financial institutions) is vital for banks. 

Consider situations in which a non-client is a co-signer on a credit (for instance, a house mortgage) or has a shared financial interest with a bank’s client. Changes in their circumstances, such as a change of address or employment, could significantly impact the risk profile associated with the bank’s client accounts. Hence, periodic KYC updates are a proactive measure to ensure compliance, security, and financial crime prevention. Not only that, but it is also mandatory by current regulations.
