Three New Banks Subscribe To KNC Database

KYC Exchange Net (KNC) has signed service contracts with Commerzbank, Société Générale and Standard Chartered for access and exchange of Know Your Customer (KYC) data between banks and their clients.

The service provided by KNC charges banks for access to the KYC information using a web-based software-as-a-service platform, which doesn’t require frequent maintenance or investment in terminals.

An information request from the KYC database fetches the information for the bank in less than a minute and any update of previously shared information is automatically shared on real time basis with previous recipients, according to

“If KYC Exchange Net now gains momentum in building up a large network it will have a good chance to become a one stop shop-solution for the KYC related regulatory requirements,” said Frank Sperling, head of relationships management at DZ Bank.
