smartKYC’s AI software is used by banks to automate customer due diligence whether for remediation, onboarding, refresh or continuous monitoring; our technology drives faster, better, and more cost- effective KYC at every stage of the relationship – liberating human effort to focus on decision-making rather than laborious screening and research. smartKYC integrates all relevant KYC sources - external watchlists, media archives, open web search, private company data, internal blacklists and, like a human, it reads everything and extracts useful intelligence in the form of facts. smartKYC presents facts about risks like adverse media, but also provides insights into information like source of wealth, network risk and even ESG misdemeanours. Sophisticated hit scoring maximises relevance and minimises false positives. All of this is done at speed and at scale and, as such, straight through processing opportunities become obvious. In refresh or continuous monitoring mode, smartKYC watches only for net new risks as they emerge and never repeats what is already known.
