Future Vision

One of the biggest pain points and challenges with KYC list screening is that it invariably requires manual effort to clear false positives and manage the audit paper work. KYC2020 is investing heavily in proprietary screening methodology that greatly reduces the number of false positives, intuitive user interfaces to speed clearing of exceptions, electronic storage of documents, and the use of AI Concepts for self-learning for improved scoring.

KYC2020 also recognizes that the AML/KYC function for many of the smaller MSBs and ICOs is NOT core to business operations. Without some level of economies of scale this compliance function, no matter how sophisticated the tools and technology, requires a human to manage screening, signoff, record keeping, and work flow management.

Our 2023 Vision is to leverage our team of in-house AML/KYC Compliance Officers to offer a cost-effective fully managed solution built upon our tools for firms that want to outsource parts of their screening functions.
