Common Sense Virtual Roundtable:

Is Your KYC Process Driving Consumers to the Competition?

Here’s what we discussed:

Improving the digital account opening experience is mandatory for any financial institution wanting to support a strong customer acquisition strategy.

Since 2019, there have been more checking accounts opened through digital channels than in person. Unfortunately, traditional KYC tools haven’t kept up with this move to digital. They aren’t designed to help with digital identity verification, making it challenging to recognize and combat stolen ID/synthetic ID fraud. Additionally, these KYC tools don’t work well for unbanked or under-banked applicants, resulting in a time-consuming, complicated, high-friction process for the applicant to prove their identity.
In this interactive roundtable, Barret Kaubisch, Senior Manager of Ekata, a Mastercard company will lead the group in discussion around topics such as:
  • The challenges with traditional KYC, and the impacts to your business
  • Technologies available to address these KYC gaps
  • How to use global data, sophisticated data science, and machine learning models to enhance legacy KYC tools
