Thanks to Finologee’s expertise in building and running business-critical and regulated infrastructures that are live since 2006, the Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) framework that KYC Manager is part of has been designed to meet outsourcing requirements that apply to the Luxembourg financial industry1. KYC Manager is provided in a SaaS mode and hosted in Luxembourg in a Tier IV data centre by EBRC. Besides the KYC Manager product, Finologee also runs several critical infrastructure platforms in its ‘Trusted FinTech’ environment: the PSD2 for banks infrastructure for more than 35 banks, e-money and payment institutions; the Digicash platform for Payconiq and the Mpulse telecom payment and routing system, handling hundreds of millions of transactions a year.
Finologee operates under a ‘Support PFS” (Professional of the Financial Sector – “PSF de Support”, articles 29-1 and 29-4 of the Luxembourg 5 April 1993 law on the financial sector) Licence (N° 06/19) issued by the Luxembourg Minister of Finance and as such is subject to full financial industry compliance requirements. It is also ISO/IEC 27001 certified.
The modularity of the KYC Manager platform comes from a wide and readily available array of components and APIs that enable financial institutions to cherry-pick components and modules to create hyper-personalised end-to-end client and employee experiences.
The integration of these different components into the ready-to-use KYC Manager platform allows system users to design and build smooth, frictionless, and efficient digital KYC user journeys, such as digital onboarding flows, KYC remediation campaigns, client/account update campaigns, periodic KYC review campaigns, black list/sanction list checks, adverse media and business register/database checks and many others.
Our solutions for financial institutions cover every aspect of modern customer lifecycle management.
A sophisticated solution that allows financial institutions to initiate automated remediation workflow processes in order to perfect and enrich existing client / counterparty profiles to support a wide range of compliance obligations.
A solution that goes beyond initial onboarding and takes a lifetime view of the client, enabling financial institutions to perform data refreshes, ongoing due diligence and periodic KYC reviews.
A solution that enables financial institutions to engage customers of every type (natural and legal persons) when and how they prefer—conveniently and reliably. Onboard and offboard customers with intuitive and frictionless data and document collection, while enabling back office teams to digitally perform the verification and approval processes.
A solution that enables organisations to submit a list of KYC records to run against one or more Blacklists/Sanction lists. Ability to submit KYC records to recurring blacklist/sanction list checks or run checks manually. Choose KYC records from list, based on filters, choose which BL/SL lists to use and run the job. Display results: lists with hit(s)/no hit flag, and option to check details of hits. Display and option to eliminate false positives. Export via Import/Export function.
Clients can use a questionnaire for their customers to fill in to define their MiFID II investor profile. Financial institutions can run a campaign on selected/filtered users to notify them via Email/SMS to connect to update their profile. Ability to check details and validate profiles within the system (for compliance teams/back office teams). Export of data/files via the Import & Export function.
The modularity and flexibility of the platform enable us to adapt these solutions to your specific needs. KYC Manager is available in a white-label mode enabling you to completely integrate your organisation’s look & feel.
We cover a wide range of use cases to support various financial industry segments and we respond to any type of business needs. Some examples:
Private banking and wealth management clients have to cope with tighter regulatory demands with respect to sanctions, politically exposed persons (PEPs) and beneficial ownership transparency, resulting in more documents, further delays and ultimately complex customer experience. With KYC Manager’s digital onboarding and customer lifecycle solution compliance is guaranteed, time-to-revenue and costs are significantly reduced, while efficiency levels are improved allowing institutions to instead focus on more profit-driven tasks.
With KYC Manager insurance companies and their distribution networks can improve internal efficiencies, onboard applicants faster and keep costs under control, all while keeping the agents/brokers, the compliance department and the customers engaged and informed throughout the entire customer lifecycle. Insurance companies can rely on KYC Manager for trustworthy KYC information as well as for automated AML and other regulatory checks and reporting.
With KYC Manager, fund administrators can deliver a truly optimised, efficient and transparent investor journey – from initial investor onboarding to every aspect of the investor lifecycle management. Compliance with AML/CFT regulations and transparency throughout the entire process is guaranteed for all parties. As a fund administrator give your customers a modern digital experience and faster time to revenue while carrying out automated KYC background checks and streamlining your internal KYC procedures.
KYC Manager leverages on a network of leading digital system integrators and implementation partners.
1Disclaimer: choosing to outsource to a Luxembourg ‘Support PFS’ is one of the pillars to achieve regulatory compliance on outsourcing arrangements for Luxembourg-regulated banks and financial industry players. Nonetheless, outsourcing to Finologee does not confer any warranties by Finologee to such players with regards to their own IT outsourcing (or KYC/AML) regulation compliance, each player remains responsible for its own compliance requirements. Finologee holds a ‘Support PFS’ licence (Professional of the Financial Sector – “PSF de Support”, articles 29-1 and 29-4 of the Luxembourg 5 April 1993 law on the financial sector – Licence N° 06/19) issued by the Luxembourg Minister of Finance and as such is subject to full financial industry compliance requirements. This does not mean that Finologee’s individual products such as ‘KYC Manager’ have been audited, validated or approved by public authorities such as the Luxembourg regulator (the Commission de Surveillance du Secteur financier (CSSF)).
