Shifting Regulatory Requirements and a Spotlight on Ownership


An overview of the Accuity Financial Counterparty KYC Survey

The effects of the 2008 financial crisis coupled with the rise in global terrorism have prompted tighter regulations, leading banks and other financial institutions to review their compliance strategies. These developments have made it even more important to understand and address the day-to-day obstacles that the industry is facing, as well as to consider some of the solutions available to help alleviate these challenges.

We spoke to over 100 banks, financial institutions, corporates, and government and regulatory bodies across all regions to get deeper insight into their pain points in conducting financial counterparty KYC. We have compared the results from our 2017 survey with the results from our 2014 and 2016 surveys to provide a global view of the latest trends, including an increased emphasis on the need to identify Ultimate Beneficial Ownership (UBO).
