KYB/CDD to Safeguard FinTech Crime

A Report by CYS Global Remit FinTech Development Unit  

In today's digital age, where business transactions transcend borders, conducting due diligence is paramount.  Know Your Business (KYB) checks have emerged as a cornerstone in establishing trust and authenticity between entities. This meticulous process involves verifying a business's identity, including its legal status, physical address, and legitimacy of operations.  


KYB checks are essential for organizations seeking to delve deeper into the entities they engage with, going beyond surface-level information.  These investigations ensure that a business is not only registered and authorized to operate but also financially stable and reputable within its industry. By comparing collected data against reliable sources, companies can meet regulatory requirements, significantly reducing the risk of associating with fraudulent or illicit activities.  


KYB also plays a crucial role in compliance with Anti-Money Laundering (AML) directives and safeguarding an organization's reputation. These checks help mitigate risks such as engaging with entities involved in money laundering or terrorism financing, thereby protecting financial and reputational integrity.  This is especially critical for CYS Global Remit, where SME communities are a focus market.  


Moreover, KYB practices strengthen business relationships by fostering transparency and trust. This facilitates new opportunities and collaborations, contributing to overall organizational success.  Identifying ultimate beneficial owners (UBOs), ensuring no links to illegal activities, and understanding potential exposure to corruption are all facets of KYB checks that contribute to a more secure and trustworthy business landscape.  


At CYS Global Remit, we pride ourselves on staying up to date with the best practices to secure your funds and trust in us.
