In collaboration with Deloitte and Banking Circle, we have conducted a survey amongst our members to understand the best practices in the KYT field. This regulating working group aims to present and discuss the results of our EXCLUSIVE survey results. In the end, the objective is to support payment operators in their dialogue with the regulator and in choosing the best approach for the future.
Knowing your transactions is more important than ever. Current expectations from customers are pushing the rapid evolution of payments, but also challenges established payment companies to keep up with applicable laws and regulations.
There are currently several tools to screen transaction monitoring in the market, yet they are usually too inadequate or complex to fulfill the needs of payment companies today. RegTech is seeking to meet these needs through leveraging new technologies such as AI, machine learning and NLP to create data-based tools to effectively screen transactions.
The EBA guidelines have been written at a period prior to the most recent developments in the industry and therefore the payment players and local regulatory authorities spend useless time and efforts to ensure the modern methods are not only compliant with the spirit of the regulations but also operationally effective.
