Our goal is to promote global transparency and make regulations less onerous on both suppliers and customers of financial services by providing a highly intuitive, end-to-end compliance solution.
Established in Hong Kong in 2015, Know Your Customer was founded by Claus Christensen, Richard Barrett and Cormac Doddy. The three co-founders, whose combined experience ranged from real estate and property development to IT and business strategy, joined forces to build a state of the art platform and revolutionise the world of KYC compliance. Their mission was to fully digitise and streamline the onboarding process for both corporate and individual customers, improving efficiency and strengthening compliance.
With offices in Hong Kong, Singapore, Shanghai, and Dublin and team members across 17 different countries, Know Your Customer has quickly established a global presence and a reputation for excellence. Our clients span across 11 sectors – including banking, FinTech, insurance, payments, real estate, asset management, legal, among others – and 18 jurisdictions and are using our technology to verify and onboard customers from more than 180 countries.
Global attention to money laundering and financing of terrorism practices has grown exponentially in recent years. As criminals constantly come up with new tactics, financial regulators frequently update compliance requirements in their fight against dirty money.
From the beginning, our team has constantly focused on developing a cutting-edge, market-leading solution that truly addresses organisations’ compliance needs, yet is flexible enough to adapt to new requirements and industry standards as they are introduced. We are deeply committed to enabling transparency and clean business practices through the power of automation. Our objective is to ensure that our technology stays one step ahead of key trends in customer experience, helping our clients deliver the digital journeys and interactions that their end users now expect from them.
