KYC & AML
TACKLING IDENTITY VERIFICATION REQUIREMENTS FOR AML AND KYC
The ever-evolving regulatory landscape is forcing financial institutions to solve multiple regulations and compliance rules simultaneously. These regulations dictate a different set of data, documentation, and regulatory classification requirements, putting increased pressure on already stretched compliance, data management, and onboarding teams.
LutinX Regulatory Protocol provides an out-of-the-box repository of rules, which can be easily configured by financial institutions to future-proof against evolving regulatory and operational requirements. The Rules Engine supports the regulations required for investment, corporate and private banks to be compliant, including:
– KYC and AML Regulations e.g., Patriot Act, 3rd and 4th EU Anti Money Laundering Directive, FINRA Rules, etc.;
– Tax Regulations e.g., Common Reporting Standard, FATCA, UK CDOT, and associated inter-governmental agreements;
– Global OTC Derivative Regulations e.g., Dodd-Frank (US), EMIR (EU), Margin Requirements, as well as emerging OTC derivatives rules in APAC (ASIC, HKMA, MAS) and Canada.
– Market Reform Rules e.g., MiFID II

SOME MORE: THE GDPR
ON MAY 25TH, 2018, THE GENERAL DATA PROTECTION REGULATION (GDPR) CAME INTO FULL FORCE IMPACTING ANY BANK IN THE WORLD THAT STORES OR PROCESSES PERSONAL INFORMATION ON EU CITIZENS.
GDPR, one of the most lobbied regulations in the EU, marks a significant development in the field of data protection law. It mandates banks to undertake a significant amount of change in terms of how they organize their processes, operations and technologies to help meet the stringent requirements that this regulation demands.
With extreme penalties at stake, GDPR poses a massive operational, compliance and technological challenge for banks due to the volume of data and documentation collected, stored and processed on private individuals.
The date that GDPR came into effect will mark the passing of 23 years since the Data Protection Directive initially took root in 1995. the world has become a more digitalized and globalized place, and our data protection legislation must be strengthened to keep up with these advances.
Here we present you the GPDP key definitions
A potential legal basis for processing, and a must-have for marketing purposes. Must be freely given, informed, and given explicitly by statement or action. Silence or inactivity may no longer be relied upon.
A security incident relating to the destruction, misuse or loss of, or accidental or unlawful access to personal information.
A natural person whose data is being processed.
PRIVACY, BY DESIGN & BY DEFAULT
GDPR calls for organisations to consider data protection and privacy by design and default, essentially requiring them to include data protection principles from the very beginning of a new project or system design, rather than as an afterthought.

4th AML Directive Overview
The Fourth EU Anti-Money Laundering Directive (4MLD), effective from June 26th, 2017, is intended to deliver a greater focus on ultimate beneficial ownership and an enhanced risk-based approach to compliance.
The Directive provides stricter requirements for compliant Client Lifecycle Management and Know Your Customer processes, strengthens risk-based approaches, and prompts the removal of Customer Due Diligence (CDD) exemptions.
The Fifth EU Anti-Money Laundering Directive, set for implementation in 2018, will enforce this further by introducing a stricter beneficial owner threshold of 10% for high-risk entities.
Rules-Driven Approach Required to Comply with 4th AML Directive
Financial institutions must be capable of delivering a robust, risk-based approach to AML compliance to comply with the 4th AML Directive.
This involves understanding precisely who you are doing business with, identifying where the sources of funds originate, and accurately determining the identities of all known counterparties and associations to the client organization.
Financial organizations need to implement a rigorous approach to 4MLD & 5MLD compliance with severe reputational and financial penalties on the line.

LutinX combines intelligent regulatory rules logic with a centralized client and counterparty data, enabling financial institutions to comply with Australia’s AML legislation efficiently.
AUSTRAC issued the AML CTF Act in 2006, which requires reporting entities to verify a customer’s identity before providing a designated service to the customer. The AML CTF Rules sets out the minimum customer identification information and information about beneficial owners, which reporting entities must obtain and verify. Reporting entities are also required to identify and declare whether a customer or the customer’s beneficial owner is a ‘politically exposed person’ (PEP).
Rules-Driven Approach Required to Comply with AUSTRAC
AUSTRAC compliance creates significant operational challenges for financial organizations tasked with efficient onboarding and client lifecycle management. Covered financial institutions must ensure they comply with the AML CTF Act or face severe financial and reputational penalties. To improve time to revenue and enhance the client experience, banks must adopt a rigorous rules-driven AML process capable of delivering consistent compliance throughout the client lifecycle.

HKMA AML Overview
On 1 March 2018, The Hong Kong Monetary Authority (HKMA) will enact the Anti-Money Laundering and Counter-Terrorist Financing (Amendment) Bill 2017.
This requires covered financial institutions to comply with statutory customer due diligence (CDD) and record-keeping requirements for the relevant individuals’ HKMA register.
These enhancements aim to bring Hong Kong’s regulatory regime in line with FATF recommendations and to safeguard the integrity of Hong Kong as a global financial center.
Robust Approach Required to Comply with HKMA AML
HKMA AML compliance puts increased focus and pressure on customer due diligence (CDD) and KYC processes for financial institutions, adding significantly to the overall cost of compliance, potentially increasing the time to revenue for most banks and impacting the client experience.

MAS Act Overview
The MAS Act led to the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) in 1971.
This AML/CTF legislation obliges financial institutions to put robust controls to detect and deter the flow of illicit funds through Singapore’s financial system.
This includes the need to identify and know their customers (including beneficial owners), to conduct regular account reviews, and to monitor and report any suspicious transactions.
Innovative Approach Required to Comply with the MAS Act
Global financial institutions must ensure complete KYC compliance at every point in the client lifecycle to comply with Singapore’s wide-ranging AML legislation.

WE FOLLOWS THE RULES
FOR PLACING CLIENTS AT THE HEART OF THE DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION
A risk-based approach that fits your KYC IDV requirements
Build the registration flow that’s right for your business. When it comes to identity verification requirements for KYC and AML compliance, you need a risk-based solution that can fit in with your more comprehensive plan to address these regulations. We’ve created tailored configurations of our identity verification platform, so you can adjust LutinX to find the right balance of convenience and security to match the level of risk you’re comfortable with and the individual risk profiles of your users.
For example, you can use a document-first onboarding process to either supplement traditional credit data checks or replace them altogether. In the first instance, only users who don’t match traditional data sources need to perform an additional document or biometric check to confirm their identity. In the second instance, all users need to complete a biometric step at onboarding—giving you the assurance that each user is genuine and the valid owner of their ID.
Meet regulatory obligations and delight your customers
You don’t need to compromise on user experience to meet KYC and AML regulations’ identity verification requirements.
LutinX helps you balance both priorities with user-centric design, adding extra smoothness to areas where you need to ask your customers for more data to verify their identity.
LutinX’s SDKs include glare and blur detection, which give real-time feedback to help users submit only high-quality pictures for document verification. Easy. And our SDKs work across all platforms—from desktop to tablet and smartphone—so users can pick what works for them.
No wonder we have one of the best conversion rates in the market.
